We received word this week that we would have the opportunity to participate in a really fantastic event going on Wednesday.

Starting at midnight, you will have the chance to help a local organization that you feel passionate about.

Hudson Valley Gives is the first ever online fundraising event created by the Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan with help from the Mid Hudson Valley Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals and the United Way of the Dutchess-Orange Region. Local nonprofit organizations will join forces tomorrow and multiply the resources made available to each organization.
