Mark your Calendars: Midlands Gives is May 3rd!

Hello friends,

The Salvation Army of the Midlands will be participating in Midlands Gives, a one day online giving challenge or "giving day" to be held on Tuesday, May 3rd.https://midlandsgives.org/

It is being presented by the Central Carolina Community Foundation.https://midlandsgives.org/#about

You may have heard some news about Midlands Gives already. If not, please allow us a moment to explain how you can get involved.

Last year, Midlands Gives raised $1.5 million for 252 nonprofits in the Midlands. This community impact initiative is a day for all citizens to come together to raise as much money as possible for nonprofit organizations.

Your donations to The Salvation Army of the Midlands will go towards our Leveraging Literacy After School Reading Program and other youth character development categories.

The Leveraging Literacy After School Reading Program is for students who are in 1st- 5thgrades who are reading below grade level. Through the continued support of donors like you, last fiscal year this free after school reading program helped 38 children improve their reading skills!

Here's how it works:

May 3rd, our Salvation Army page will go live and be available to accept donations beginning at midnight and will be live until 11:59 p.m. (24 hours). Here is the link to our page. https://midlandsgives.org/#npo/the-salvation-army-of-the-midlands

Please keep in mind donations can only be made on the site for the 24 hour period on May 3rd.

We are asking that you please mark your calendars for May 3rd and help The Salvation Army by donating to our afterschool reading program and other youth character development categories. Also, please feel free to share our information about Midlands Gives with your family and friends.

In addition, you can keep track of our participation in Midlands Gives on  The Salvation Army of the Midlands Facebook page and follow our posts about Midlands Gives and other items of interest.
