Each month as part of the organizations #CNPGives project, Careers In Nonprofits selects two non-profits to support because they believe it is important for everyone to give back to the community. Monique Webb-Papia spearheaded the selection of NorthPointe Resources as a recipient of their charitable efforts after learning about the organization and its mission.
“This month I really wanted to focus on an organization that we could donate time from a grassroots perspective,” Webb-Papia said, “I chose NorthPointe Resources because it’s a wonderful organization. This is somewhat personal to me because it is located in my hometown and I have a brother with special needs.”
