#MidlandsGives is May 5th!

Posted by: Becca Smith Hill


Chances are you’ve already heard about it, but it’s mere days away!  Last year was the first ever Midlands Gives event and what an amazing success it was for local non-profits!

The on-line giving event is hosted by Central Carolina Community Foundation, bastion of local philanthropy.  This event makes it easy to be a philanthropist!  On May 5th make a donation of at least $20 to your favorite organization and you can be a philanthropist too!  If you choose to support St. Lawrence Place, (and we’d be honored if you did), just click here.

Even if you don’t support us, please consider giving generously to any participating local non-profit; for a full list, click here.

All donations received for SLP on May 5th will go directly toward our new Job Center for SLP residents.  In conjunction with Goodwill Industries, Turning Pages, and Richland One Adult Education, we will be offering classes & job skills, a “Career Closet” with work-appropriate clothing, as well as 4 new computers for resume-writing and job searching.

Interested in getting social with your Midlands Give donation?  Join SLP and 15 other non-profits on Boyd Plaza in front of the Columbia Museum of Art between 10 AM and 2 PM.  Four local food trucks will be on site, (The Belgian Waffle Truck, San Jose Food Truck, The Wurst Wagen, & Bone-In Artisan BBQ!), as well as live entertainment and non-profits with laptops so you can give online right there!  And the CMA is offering FREE admission to the museum all day!

Magnify the Midlands and be a philanthropist on May 5th!
