    TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 2017

    Washington County Gives is a county-wide, single-day event that draws attention to the many local, charitable non-profit organizations that enhance our quality of life every day of the year.

    The Blair Area Community Foundation and the Blair Area Chamber of Commerce are combining their forces to create awareness of the cause and inspire people to be generous on this one day of giving.

    Vision Statement:

    Washington County Gives was created to promote and enhance the culture of giving across our great county and its communities. Our purpose is to help support and progress our neighborhoods and the people of this county through a centralized day of giving and celebration. This collaboration is to help broaden the reach of our member organizations and their abilities to benefit the county and its people.

    Washington County Gives is a terrific way to show pride in our community and help our local non-profits accomplish their missions. If you wish to help the effort by matching donations or providing prizes, please contact the Chamber of Commerce at 402-533-4455.
