SCC is able to accomplish all we do each year thanks to the ongoing hard work of members, supporters and partners. Each step of the way, you are there, making a difference in the lives of Somerville residents and the future direction of the City.
The things that sustain us . . .
- Walking into the Somerville Aldermanic Chambers and seeing a roomful of people there to support the important policies around affordable housing, jobs and community benefits
- Listening to members – many who don’t have a lot of experience with public speaking – giving heart-felt testimonies at public meetings
- Receiving a check in the mail from a new donor, or from someone who makes it a priority to contribute to SCC every year
- All the spontaneous treats our members leave for us in our kitchen: chocolate chip cookies, roasted curry chicken, Bengali pakoras, pupusas, Union Square Donuts, pastries from Paul Bakery . . .
You, our members, give us so much every day. SCC would not be who we are today without the spirited generosity of all of our people.
