The Norris Group is proud presenting sponsor of Riverside’s first online giving day November 13th. 100 nonprofits are working together to raise money and awareness for local need, right here in our back yard. TNG donated some of the prize money that will be awarded to the nonprofit with the most unique online donations.  We have also had the great privilege and honor of working with The Community Foundation, the Give BIG Riverside Steering Committee, and all the nonprofits to bring this important event to Riverside, and the first time in the Inland Empire area.

Aaron Norris currently serves on the board of Community Connect. Community Connect has eight programs that serves all of Riverside County.  Two of his favorites are 211 and the Senior Ombudsman Program.

If you call 211 from anywhere within Riverside County, you’ll be connected to an operator able to help connect you to health and humans service agencies. Only ONE phone call connect you to resources both local and from multiple agencies.  Imagine losing your home with no one to turn to.  211 could provide shelter, food, and other needed resources tailored for the county you’re calling from and for your specific need!   It’s a non-emergency number and one-stop shop. It’s a tremendous resource for Realtors and real estate investors alike.

The senior ombudsman program is also run by Community Connect.   This program trains community volunteers to objectively investigate and resolve problems of residents in nursing homes and board and care homes. At its core, Ombudsman is a grassroots program based on human kindness and the belief that all individuals have basic human rights and comforts that should be provided.
And that’s just two of eight incredible programs this agency alone runs.

On November 13th, we are participating in a mini networking event at the Canyon Crest Winery at Canyon Crest in Riverside.  It’s very casual and after work. Canyon Crest Winery is giving away a free custom label with a bottle of wine purchased. Perfect for the ho0lidays. They also have $5 wine tasting. We’re reaching out to the real estate community to see if this something we can get behind and share with our networks. While we’d love for you to contribute to Community Connect, the fact is, any donation to one of the 100 participating nonprofits is wonderful. Even $10 can make a big difference for those that make our area an even better place to live.

Hope to see you on November 13th!
