Give Local 757 helps area nonprofits benefit from community generosity
May 14, 2019 / ANTHONY SABELLA
Is there a local cause you support? Give Local 757's annual Giving Day is a good time to make a donation. This year's event started at midnight Tuesday and runs until midnight on Wednesday with more than 200 listed Hampton Roads nonprofits hoping to benefit. A one-stop-shop list of participating nonprofits is located on Give Local 757's website. Peninsula Community Foundation is behind the event with a goal to "strengthen local nonprofits by sparking and growing philanthropy in our region." Last year, more than $800,000 was raised in the 24-hour time span. This year, nonprofits like Vanguard Landing are hoping to get a slice of that pie. Vanguard Landing is a unique community planning to break ground on Princess Anne Road in Virginia Beach later this year.
