Community relations and community outreach refers to the various methods used to establish and maintain mutually beneficial relationships with the community and Trocaire’s most important stakeholders.
Part of that work ensures that Trocaire is well represented and that our college community makes positive contributions to the community we are a part of. We can’t accomplish that unless we head out into Western New York and meet with and talk to people and organizations to learn about them and identify where there may be opportunity to connect and collaborate.
Recently, Trocaire’s Director, Marketing and Public Relations made contact with several amazing Western New York nonprofit organizations that are doing incredibly important work within the community. In fact, many of their missions and visions align well with the five critical concerns of Trocaire’s founders The Sisters of Mercy and thus, you can see a Mercy spirit alive and well within many areas of Buffalo Niagara.
Here are a few of the organizations she got to know better. Check them out to learn more about the ways they contribute to our community and make sure to contact them if you are interested in learning more!
