Water Wednesday: Power of Service

Sep 14, 2022 @ 12:00 PM 1:00 PM

When we come together, it’s amazing what we can achieve!

Interfaith Partners for the Chesapeake (IPC) has partnered with Potomac Riverkeeper Network (PRKN) for a special ‘Water Wednesday’ program on the Power of Service!  We hope to see you there for this special lunch-hour virtual event.

In this program you’ll learn all about how impactful volunteerism has been for IPC and PRKN, about the “state-of-the-Potomac”, and how communities of faith are unifying together to pledge their commitment to the Chesapeake Bay!  We hope to celebrate together the importance of our volunteers, and we hope you can join us!

Thank you from all of us for what you’ve achieved, and what we will achieve together!

Water Wednesday: Power of Service
