““Gather for Good.” founded by the low-key Stephanie Chen and Sherry Mandell (both dedicated volunteers,) is a grass roots, community group of business owners, parents and caring residents who were feeling helpless and overwhelmed by the current news climate and wanted to make a difference. This all started because they love to connect with their neighbors, friends and family over good pastries and coffee. And through the action of gathering people together, doing good and giving back—the group slowly found their voice again in this challenging time.”
“The goal for Gather for Good events is to be a spark of inspiration to show that you can make a difference through simple actions within your own communities. They believe there is an opportunity for each and every one of us to get out there and build our communities to be stronger than ever. Because in the end, we are all better together…”
