East Cooper Newcomers Club has a monthly Luncheon meeting, which includes both a business meeting and a program or speaker. In addition, we sponsor a monthly morning Coffee, hosted at Point Hope Church, which provides an informal setting for meeting new members, and catching up with old friends. Twice a year (October and March), the Board hosts a special coffee for all members both new and established. This enables them to re-connect with old friends and meet the Board and ask any questions they may have .
Our Philanthropy Chairperson brings to our attention at meetings nonprofit organizations for which members may serve as volunteers, and helps to link them together. She also identifies local charities in need of financial support and offers members an opportunity to contribute to these organizations. The Philanthropy Chairperson also reaches out to our own members needing support due to illness or family circumstances through the Caring Committee.
