NCMUG: Helping the Homeless

A good user group improves the lives of its members. A great group improves its community as well. For example, when President Lorene Romero sent out a call for donations of warm clothing for the homeless in Sonoma County, the group collected an amazing amount on short notice. One member, Lynn Ashmore, even donated  7 bins of warm sweaters and related items. Mac User Groups can make a difference. Does yours?
