The November Update

by Trevor Jacobson | Nov 17, 2023 | Monthly Newsletter

Hello, friends of Easy Does It; here’s everything we have to share for November, the Holidays are quickly approaching, and the weather is finally calming down. After a hectic summer, we’re excited to celebrate this Holiday season with our friends and family. We are also working to improve our Website and social media presence while filling our calendar with some community events and activities. This month, on Tuesday, November 28, we’ll host an online give-a-thon for Giving Tuesday. On December 2, we’ll be tabling at the Downtown Berkeley Farmers Market. We’re also pleased to share that our emergency attendants are taking an in-person training program to refresh and improve their quality service skills. In addition, The CIL has launched a brand new website and an attendant registry.
