Powering the Local Community
Aspenworks believes power is in your local economy. To that end, Aspenworks contributes hours in the production of Internet Groups, Media and information to help power local choices and activity to grow local economies, stop economic leakage, improve the commonwealth and stabilize what it can – the local communities where it does business. From stand alone blogs, to pages and groups within Social Media services – like Facebook, Aspenworks continues to push for local benefits to communities.
If you like the community blogs on Facebook, and other community activities, you can show your support by making a donation of whatever amount you like here:
