Thank you to all the NIGP Forum 2016 attendees who stopped by the U.S. Communities booth to spin the wheel during our Showcase Showdown. We had fun watching you spin to win prizes and have a chance to donate to one of the charities, including the Kids in Need Foundation, American Red Cross and the Capital Area Food Bank.
We are excited to announce that your participation helped us achieve $1825 in donations. In addition, U.S. Communities will match the donations for a total of $3650 to charity. We are grateful for the opportunity to provide agencies the chance to donate through our booth activity. We recognize the need to encourage philanthropy and giving back to our communities.
A donation of $1950 to the Kids in Need Foundation will be used to provide school suppliers to students most in need. For the 16 million kids who come from families struggling with extreme poverty, getting school supplies can make all the difference in the world to their future success.
$1000 will go to the American Red Cross for disaster relief helping people affected by disasters big and small.
A donation of $700 to Capital Area Food Bank, a local food bank that provides food to those affected by hunger.
Thank all who participated and helped us give back to our communities!
