History of Go-Givers in Longview: Shortly after his election as Mayor in 2015, Andy Mack hosted a community-wide “Mayor Mack’s Book Club” focusing on a book called “The Go-Giver” by Bob Burg and John David Mann. The book is a little story about the huge power of giving. During and after that book club, many individuals throughout Longview stepped up to be “Go-Givers” for by donating their time, energy, and money to important needs in our community. This gala is an opportunity to recognize some of those individuals and to encourage others to follow their lead.
Why we are supporting Homeless initiatives: In 2017, Mayor Mack formed the Mayor’s Task Force on Homelessness. This group included representatives from nonprofits, government, churches, and businesses, working together to develop a unified plan for addressing homelessness in Longview. The task force developed many wonderful ideas that will require funding to implement. Read more about the Task Force and their recommendations at LongviewTexas.gov/Homeless.
