MPEDC wrapped up the 2021 Economic Development Week (May 9-15) with TWO exciting announcements and some volunteerism:
3) VOLUNTEERISM: This week, all MPEDC staff volunteered with other community members to role play in the Chamber of Commerce’s “Nonprofit Day: Life Simulation” for the 2021 Mount Pleasant Leadership Class. The simulation is hosted by the National Credit Union & the Mount Pleasant Texas Chamber of Commerce to bring awareness to poverty & decision-making behavior of varying socio-economic groups under simulated financial pressures. What an empowering and eye-opening experience for our future community leaders! Mount Pleasant has an amazing nonprofit community! Thank you for the opportunity to participate, Mount Pleasant Texas Chamber of Commerce.
