It’s BACK!  Give Local, the online-giving challenge, has returned for Round #2 but this time it is nation-wide! Give Local America kicks off on Tuesday, May 6th and runs for just 24 hours – ending at noon on May 7th!

This opportunity is very important for our job training and job placement programs as every gift will be amplified with matching dollars from national and local funds donated by the Connecticut Community Foundation.

Consider making your annual contribution during this event because every dollar is essentially worth more.

Your support is greatly appreciated.

Other Ways You Can Help:

Be Social!  Tell your friends and family & spread the word about our participation in this event through social media.  We will be sending out e-newsletters and posting on our Twitter and Facebook pages in the days leading up to and during the challenge.

A picture is worth a thousand words, right? Show your support for our students and program by taking an un-selfish #selfie photo and share it & tag us on social media.  Or, if you have attended an event and posed with our students – use that too in a show of support for the true beneficiaries of the Give Local Challenge:
