The Bismarck-Mandan Young Professionals Network (YPN) is pleased to announce that it will be partnering with American Red Cross for one year, from October 2015 through September 2016.
The partnership, which comes about as part of the YPN strategic plan, will allow the local American Red Cross chapter the opportunity to connect with young professionals from around Bismarck-Mandan while providing YPN members with service opportunities throughout the year. The YPN will direct all fundraising and most volunteer efforts for the next year toward the organization.
The Bismarck-Mandan Young Professionals Network accepted applications from network members in June and July and selected three non-profit finalists. Each of the three finalist organizations had the chance to give a short presentation to the YPN Leadership Team in early September and YPN leadership ultimately selected the American Red Cross.
“The YPN is proud to serve a national organization that makes an incredible impact on our community. We believe that this partnership will provide the American Red Cross with numerous resources to better serve those in need.” said TJ Jerke, YPN president.
The YPN would like to thank all the members who nominated non-profit organizations. To learn more about the American Red Cross, visit www.redcross.org or attend YPN’s All Hands Fall Kickoff this Wednesday, October 21 at the Harvest Brazilian Grill from 5:30 pm – 8:00 pm.
