If you’re new to the Midlands or haven’t been involved in previous years, you may be asking, “What is Midlands Gives?”
Hosted by Central Carolina Community Foundation, Midlands Gives is a 24-hour online giving event that brings the region together as one community, raising money and awareness for local nonprofits in 11 Midlands counties.
In just three years, Midlands Gives has generated $3.8 million in gifts for the Midlands community. In 2016, more than 12,000 gifts totaling $1.6 million were given to benefit more than 380 local nonprofits.
The fourth annual Midlands Gives event will take place on Tuesday, May 2, 2017, beginning at 12:00:01 am and ending at 11:59:59 pm at MidlandsGives.org.
In the last 40 years Palmetto Place has been a home to more than 7,000 children and teens. In 2016 we were able to not only expand our original house, but also our programs for homeless teens. We now have two homes with 55 beds total, allowing us to have an even greater impact on the communities we live and work in. More beds mean we’re able to move more teens from the streets to stable housing, but we need your support.
We have a very generous donor who has agreed to making a $1,000 donation, IF we get 100 donors during Midlands Gives. When you encourage your friends, family and coworkers to support Palmetto Place you’re not just increasing the impact of your donation, you’re increasing the impact Midlands Gives has on our communities! Let us know you’re planning on giving by joining our Facebook event today!
Stay tuned for more information on how you’re donation will be used to help homeless teens and children who have been abused or neglected, details on our very own headquarters, and other prizes that will make your donation go further!
