Collaborative for the Common Good
The Wingate Economic Information Center is part of the Collaborative for the Common Good (CCG). The CCG uses a project-based approach to address economic, social and ecological issues in eastern Union County. Our goal is to transform our local region by focusing on creating neighborhoods where people, places, and economies can thrive and prosper. And we will do this through collective engagement -- the power of 'we.'
