Delaware non-profits gear up for 24 hour donation event

DELAWARE- Delaware non-profits are gearing up for a one day long donation event known as “Do More 24”, on March 5th.

The campaign is powered by the United Way of Delaware and helps support more than 200 organizations across the state. Some of the non-profits participating include Attack Addiction, the Shepherd’s Office, Immanuel Shelter, Brandywine Valley SPCA and CAMP Rehoboth. If you don’t know which organization to support, the website can help you narrow that down based on location or type of service. Organizers say every donation, no matter how small, makes a difference.

“That kind of regular giving underscores, you can have one person write a big check or you can have 100 people give a small contribution and if the total number raised is the same, I’d rather take those hundred people giving something because that’s what’s growing the donor base,” says Sarah Fulton, with the Spur Impact Association.

The day of giving starts in two weeks on March 5th at p.m. and goes until March 6th at p.m.
