Community Pulse is a monthly networking event for volunteers and members of nonprofit organizations. It is sponsored by Hampton Roads Gazeti, a nonprofit community-service newspaper. Those in attendance get to introduce themselves and distribute literature about their organizations’ events. When a new issue is released, members of organizations featured in the issue are introduced and get to address the audience. At other times guest speakers are invited to talk about newsworthy issues. The event is generally held on a Tuesday or Thursday, close to the beginning of the month, at 5:30-7:30 p.m. We also sponsor special events, such as awards programs that honor excellence in volunteerism and expos that focus on health and wellness.
