Winter Bake Sale! 


We also held a bake sale fundraiser this past December in Downtown Raleigh. The event was organized by Domanique Herring. Domanique is majoring in Event Planning at North Carolina State University, and happily donated her skills to FCF’s worthy mission. Herring organized donations of artisan baked goods from bakeries all over the triangle.  It was chilly, but FCF team had fun dancing to keep warm and telling passerbys about FCF. Overall, the bake sale brought in $500 towards our Summer 2013 Strong Camps!


Elyse returns to the Raleigh team: Our team is growing with amazing people!

After serving as a summer fellow during the Strong Camp pilot program in 2011, Elyse Harris is returning to Full Circles Foundation as a Program Leader for the 2013 Raleigh Strong Camp!  As a summer fellow, Elyse was an outstanding mentor to campers and an inspiring member of the camp staff. She graduated from Davidson College with a degree in Anthropology and has worked with Citizen Schools in Charlotte, North Carolina. Elyse is also a member-at-large for the Regional FCF Steering Committee. Full Circles Foundation is thrilled to welcome her back to Raleigh!

Our amazing team is comprised of 11 inspiring women from across Southeastern United States.  Read about them here!  It includes current and former program leaders, summer fellows, a parent of an FCF participant, volunteers, as well as a few new new faces who bring with them amazing perspective and experience.  Again, please visit our new and updated website to meet the new Regional Steering Committee and never hesitate to drop one of us a line!
