NA’s gift to the Angel’s Watch Program

NA’s gift to the Angel’s Watch Program

The Angel Watch Program Provides emergency & transitional shelter, meals and counseling to battered women and their children. This year Network Arrow gave a gift donation to a family with over $600.00 in gifts (which included clothes, tablets, toys and more). We were more than happy to be able to donate to this family and give them a Christmas that they would otherwise have not had. 

Thanks to the members, family and friends of Network Arrow this family did not have to go without. We hope to continue in our charities, while promoting our businesses and growing our self-worth. 

Here is the letter that was sent in response to our generous donation:

Our next Network Arrow Meeting is scheduled for this Saturday at 10:00 AM (Business Solutions Cafe; 605 Post Office Road, Suite 302, Waldorf, MD).

Last month we supported Our Place Waldorf and fed their Soup Kitchen. It was a great experience. I would really love to do it again. We’ll discuss this and find new charity groups to help out in our community while networking with each other and finding ways to help our business grow. Here are a few bullet points for the upcoming meeting.

  • How can we help each others businesses grow?
  • What type of speaker should we bring in for learning new concepts?
  • Who will be the next charity group we sponsor?
  • How can “we” help each other to help our businesses grow?

Please share this email with any friends you may have to help this chapter grow. Remember, our next meeting is THIS SATURDAY at 10:00 AM In Waldorf, MD. Feel free to call and/or email me if you have any questions. EVERYONE IS WELCOME and we hope we’ll see you soon. PS: We’ll have coffee, drinks and some breakfast foods for you at the meeting free-of-charge.

Feeding Our Place Waldorf in September

Feeding Our Place Waldorf in September

Enter stage left, NETWORK ARROW. Who is Network Arrow? Well, we are a non-profit referral networking group of small business owners that are focused on growing our businesses while giving back to the community by donating a portion of our revenues and time to local charitable organizations.OurPlaceWaldorf

For the month of September (2016) Network Arrow is pleased and overly excited to be helping OUR PLACE WALDORF ( Our Place Waldorf provides meals to Charles County residents (of all ages/walks of life) who are in need. They strive to improve the quality of their life by fulfilling basic needs that some of us take for granted. Offering them a ride to the kitchen, clothes, food, to-go bags and more, they are a much needed asset to our community. At the current time, Our Place Waldorf is serving meals on Monday’s and Thursday’s at the Good Shepherd United Methodist Church (located at 305 Smallwood Drive, Waldorf, MD 20602). They are vigilantly working to either get a full-time location, or at least find a way to offer meals 7-days a week by expanding their current location. Serving up to 80 people a night is not an easy task and they are in constant need of help. So, if you are in the area, or have the ability to take a drive to Waldorf, MD, we urge you to find a few hours of your time to help them out in any way possible. You can sign-up to help at the kitchen from there website at Meals are served from 5:00 pm to 6:15 pm, but help is needed from 3:00 pm to 7:00 pm. Three different time slots are available to choose from, or you could choose all three slots, ranging a total of about 4 hours. A small allotted time to help out the less fortunate, when you look at the big picture.

Among other things, Network Arrow will be working towards helpingNA-GiveBack Our Place Waldorf in a variety of ways. We are proud to be sponsoring a dinner at their soup kitchen on Monday, September 26, 2016. Where we will supply all the food, cook, serve and clean. We will also be putting together some incredible to-go bags for their clients and perhaps have some blankets/pillows/clothes to offer anyone that is in need for them. Anyone that would like to participate, donate or get more information on this effort can contact or

Naturally, a place like Our Place Waldorf could use help in many different ways, so if you would like to give a donation, please do so by going to or by going to and placing a note in the Special Instructions section that you wish to donate the money to Our Place Waldorf. We will be sure to let them know that the monies are coming from you when we supply them with a Visa gift card at the end of September (2016). In it, we will give them a list of the names that made the donation possible.

Some of the things that Our Place Waldorf are in immediate need of are canned foods with pop top lids (like pudding cups, fruit cups, stew, chili, tuna, vienna sausages, beans and weenies, pop tarts, cookies small bags of chips, granola bars, crackers, peanut butter, bottled water or small juice packs). They are also looking for 10 inch sturdy paper plates, dessert plates, bowls, 12 oz plastic cups, plastic utensils, Lysol wipes, napkins and paper towels.

Sept-Hun-Act-MonthIn Charles County Maryland, there are many individuals that need our help. It’s easy to pass by and ignore. But you would be amazed at how little effort it takes to actually make a difference in someones life. We hope you take this opportunity to give back and join us in helping out Our Place Waldorf, not just for the month of September during Hunger Action Month, but as much as you can afford to. Remember, it’s not always money that makes a difference, it’s time, word of mouth and more.

Network Arrow hits Southern MD

news-buttonWe are pleased to be welcoming the existence of Network Arrow into the Southern Maryland area. Now would be the best time to join, because you will be getting in at the ground floor. We are eager to build the right relationships that will make this venture work. Our goal is to gather small business owners to help network with each other and make our businesses flourish. At the same time, we are using those same brilliant minds that took the leap to start their own businesses to help make our community better. What could be a better way to gather information than from the types of people that had the courage and mental ability to find their dream and make it come true.

We at Network Arrow felt it took a certain type of person to go into business for themselves and those creative minds can work wonders. These minds (your mind) dream outside of the box. We are not the norm, but the over-achievers, the doers. Our community needs us. And we need our community and each other.

Network Arrow has created a position where a business can generate leads and culminate new partners in their field while also brainstorming ways to help our community grow. Network Arrow and it’s members will put together raffles, change drives, barbecues and more. Of course you will want to participate because it gives you a way to get your logo out there, meet the community, fill needs that are left unmet and give back.team2 How many networking groups out there are built on leads that help the group out? Too many to count. How many are built on leads and leads for the community? Not many. That’s why it is time to join Network Arrow. Now is the time to say, “I want more and I want everyone else to have more.” Giving always has its rewards. Get rewards for yourself, your business and your community by becoming a part of Network Arrow today. Where does the charitable work for Southern Maryland come in?

Every quarter (sometimes between quarters) we will dedicate at least one charity that resides in Southern Maryland. We will create and fulfill ways of collecting monies for corresponding charities though avenues such as coin collections (in various stores), bingo events, raffle tickets and other programs of the same relations that are created for charitable events. Perhaps we could even create a new and better way of raising money.

The chapter will vote on varied/diverse groups each quarter. This will give each chapter member a chance to have a charity that is close and/or dear to them a possibility to flourish. It is not said that we can only do one charity a quarter. It is only promised that we will do at least one chapter per quarter. Some events may take more time to formulate. Our goal is to create a program that will accumulate the most monies possible for charity.

Network Arrow promises to give no less than 80% of all monies raised to said charity. The 80% will be compiled of monies made after all expenses are paid for. The other 20% will be used for materials and time spent collecting/presenting concepts. It is our hopes that members will be able to give their time freely (with the thought that certain services can be filled and billed at a reduced rate).

The next meeting is scheduled for:
10:00 am to 12:00 pm  /  LOCATION to be determined.
