Thursday, September 24, 2020 from 7:00-8:00 pm, Margaret’s Village hosted a Virtual Round Table, entitled Building our Village with a Grateful Heart. Our panelists discussed the many challenges and opportunities faced by our sector – across homelessness, education, hunger, and the systems that underpin it all.
