The purpose of the Community Giving Festival event is to connect people in our community with an opportunity to serve and give to nonprofit organizations that would greatly benefit from the services and materials rendered from the event.
What are we doing? We are coming together to serve and support local charities that are serving the needs of people in our community.
Why are we doing this? Because we are concerned about the people in our community especially the less fortunate and these awesome charities serve them on a daily basis. Who gives to the givers? We do and that’s our goal Plus it’s a perfect time for us to come together as a community in strength and love. We need it and our charities need it too.
What do we need? We need your help to support our charities. If you can, we need you to donate monetarily. Your donation will go toward helping us to host this event and purchase supplies to help these charities serve the homeless, our veterans, children in foster and more. A needs list is provided below.
To help these charities would mean the world to us and we know it will mean the world to them. They give so much to help the people in our community. We're showing our gratitude by coming together to give back to them.
