The Coalition Needs Your Help

The Greater Wheeling Coalition for the Homeless needs your help to reach our goal of 100 donations during the 24-hour Amazing Raise Ohio Valley event sponsored by the Community Foundation for the Ohio Valley on May 6th, 2014. All donations help support our homeless programs and you can use the link below to help the Coalition and local homeless people.

Community organizations like the Coalition are participating in an online giving event that will empower the people of the Ohio Valley to come together and raise as much money as possible for local nonprofits in just 24 hours.

The event begins at 12 am on Tuesday, May, 6, 2014, and ends at 11:59 pm. During these hours, the Coalition hopes to collect at least 100 donors and your contributions of any amount can be amplified by matching funds from a national pool. The Community Foundation for the Ohio Valley has committed $20,000 for a pool of incentive dollars for local programs and your donation could be the one which helps the Coalition reach one of those goals.

An online tool at the site above is counting down the seconds until the event begins, so bookmark the website, tell your friends, make a note on your calendars, set your alarms and get ready to make a difference.
