When I started writing for the News & Record over 10 years ago, I was struck by the community’s sense of … community.
So I don’t know why I was so surprised by the awestruck feeling again yesterday when I stepped inside the historical building of the Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro. In recent years, the foundation has been a quiet contributor and supporter to Action Greensboro, scholarship programs, housing programs, and the Greensboro Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
Don’t expect it be quiet much longer. There are plans in the works for Greensboro to learn more about what’s being done, and what can be done with the CFGC.
I know I could stand to hear a little more noise about what’s happening on that front.
