1st Annual Partnership Appreciation Holiday Charity Social

December 12, 2019

Management Concepts was pleased to recognize the hard work and dedication of partner organizations, such as NASWA, by hosting our first-ever partnership appreciation event. All members of our partner organizations were invited to enjoy an evening of refreshments, networking, and festivities while supporting a good cause. This year we selected So Others Might Eat (SOME) to raise money and collect much-needed non-perishable food and toiletry items to fight homelessness and poverty.
