Continues Give-Back Efforts at Annual Conference

Give-backSPIN:Senior Planners Industry Network partnered with YWCA Monterey County for its CSR efforts this month at their annual conference, SPINCon 2019 held in Monterey, CA. SPINCon has had a tradition of supporting local causes centered around women and children since its inception.

Support for YWCA
One of SPIN’s partners, Wildly Different, coordinated a fun teambuilding activity around the property to kick off the conference. One of the many stops was an activity assembling 180 hygiene kits for YWCA Monterey County’s program to assist victims of human trafficking. “With the help of associations like SPIN, we can continue providing safe refuge to women and families as they rebuild their lives,” said Taryn Kearns, Community Resource Supervisor at YWCA MontereyCounty.

Book Swap and Donation
The Give-Back efforts continued with another project that helped attendees share their no-longer-wanted business books with others. All were encouraged to scour their bookshelves for books they thought could benefit others and bring them to the conference for a book swap. Almost 100 books were collected and all but 20 were swapped. The remaining books were donated to Friends of Marina Library for their bookstore.
