Community Information Handbook 2013
CIP is pleased to announce the release
of the Community Information Handbook 2013. We understand the
importance of providing our users with the most accurate
and up-to-date information possible in these challenging
times when the demand for social services is at an
all-time high. If you haven’t already received
copies, call us at 650-349-5538 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to order your free copies or check our “Publications” section.
Bulletin Transitions into E-Blasts
Due to recent budget cuts, CIP is no longer able to produce and send E-Blasts. Many of the submissions we received were calendar items rather than news articles; please check the CIP Community Calendar page in our Publications section for lists of other options to promote community events.
