On May 6, Kitsap Community Foundation in concert with Give Local America, will be sponsoring the KITSAP GREAT GIVE. Any donations made that day on their online donation page kitsapgreatgive.org will receive matching funds through the generosity of the Kitsap United Way and other local sponsors.
Kitsap Community Foundation also serves adjacent areas, so FAITH IN ACTION SENIOR SERVICES are able to participate. They will be asking folks to contribute towards the HUB CENTER for SENIORS on that day, by logging onto their website a and giving a donation to Faith in Action. The HUB is scheduled to begin site prep early summer, and open in winter 2014/2015. They will be serving seniors from both Mason and Kitsap County. They have the money for a basic building, but still need your help to make it not just a good facility - but a great facility.
For example, sponsor a table and chair set up for 8 for $350.00, a $10,000 donation would help put on a metal roof, a $50 donation would partner with other donations to help outfit the kitchen.
For the technologically challenged, they will be hosting an event at Sunshine's Fruit Stand next to Reid Realty on St. Rte. 3 in Belfair. Simply drop by there between 12 and 2, enjoy a salad bar by Lana, and they will help you get online.
To recap: donate online ro Faith in Action On May 6 only at www.kitsapgreatgive.org. All funds donated will receive a partial match. Any donation of $10 or more will be greatly appreciated! Kitsap Community Foundation will only match gifts up to $10,000. All funds donated to Faith in Action will go towards the HUB Center for Seniors project and your senior neighbors, family and friends
