The Power of Connections: Insight from a Banyan Supporter
“One of the simplest, but most influential things, we can do is to make connections. I met the Banyan Community and realized that what they offered and needed were a match with what my home parish needed and could offer.
Many people credit their education with the creation of meaning and opportunity in their lives. Banyan offers folks the chance to make an important and relevant difference in the lives of young people and their family, passing along the gifts and opportunities they were provided in their lives. This type of connection provides benefit and meaning to both groups.
My small part was to recognize the importance of the connection, and to reach out my hand to each group, and make the connection.”
