It's time to Give Local 757!
It's that time of year again! Give Local 757 is an annual giving day when residents and friends of the Hampton Roads area support their favorite nonprofit organization by making online donations. It's a full 24 hours of showing love to the organizations that help make a big difference in the lives of thousands in our community who need it most. The big day is Tuesday, May 10th, and as a friend of Peninsula READS, we need your help to raise $6,500 and make this Give Local 757 day our best ever!
For almost 54 years, Peninsula READS has been focused on our mission to provide adult learners the opportunity to learn the literacy skills they need to live more effectively for themselves and their families. With more than 30,000 adults with insufficient literacy in the Newport News, Hampton, York, and Poquoson areas, there is a lot of work to do. With diligent staff and committed volunteer tutors, we serve about 400 learners, helping them achieve new literacy skills and personal goals. Literacy gives us access to so many things we may take for granted, like better employment opportunities, healthcare, and the security of community connectedness. Your support during this year's Give Local 757 will help us continue providing access to these opportunities and more!
So get ready to Give Local 757 to Peninsula READS! On Tuesday, May 10th, your donation could help us even more by putting us running to win prize funding if we are the nonprofit with the most unique donations between 9am and 10am! So, rise and shine, grab a cup of coffee, and click the link below to give your donation during this coffee hour! Don't forget to share with your friends and family!
