Happy 2021! Even with Covid-19 still a part of our lives, the New Year offers many opportunities to get involved with one of the many non-governmental organizations or official Chatham County programs in need of volunteers. Fearrington Village is a charity-friendly community so if you’ve been thinking of getting involved but don’t know where to start, try looking at the Chatham Connecting website, www.chathamconnecting.org. There you’ll find lots of information about the missions of over 100 non-profit organizations and official Chatham County programs. There is something for everyone no matter your interest. Your financial, time, or material donation lets your neighbors in need know that they are not forgotten during this especially difficult winter. Chatham Connecting is a volunteer-run organization that puts those in need together with those who can help. Please be part of the effort, as it’s a great way to start the New Year.
