3rd Annual Hudson Valley Gives Day
The Children's Home of Poughkeepsie will participate in the 3rd annual Hudson Valley Gives Day on Wednesday May 16th. According to their Facebook page, Hudson Valley Gives is a day of giving fueled by passion, collaboration and the power of social media. You can think of it as a type of digital telethon that benefits hundreds of much-deserving nonprofits in our area.
They are asking for our local community help in reaching their goal of $5,000 and 100 donors in support of Ivy's Fund. Studies have shown that service dogs can have a tremendous positive effect on the person they are assigned to. They can act as a coming presence to someone who may have a mental disability helping them build trust and social skills.
Get ready to give! On May 16, starting at 12:00 am midnight, visit www.hvgives.org and make a donation to them and/or to any of the great participating nonprofit organizations in our state. You will have 24 hours to make your donation, and all giving will end at 11:59 pm on May 16.
