The Community Chest of Port Washington today announced that on October 1, 2017 its 2018 fundraising campaign is officially launched. Dollars raised provide funding for 26 nonprofit organizations that serve Port Washington residents. Around Port, the Community Chest's lawn signs "We LiveHere, We Give Here," will be popping up to encourage all Port residents to support this valuable local organization. Also look out for car flags, store posters and painted windows announcing the 2018 campaign kickoff.
"Though we don’t always see past the beauty of our town, there is a great deal of need here in Port Washington. Through one donation to the Community Chest you can help make the lives of so many residents better," said Julie MeerHarnick, Executive Director, Community Chest. "Every dollar you give the Community Chest is well spent. With low overhead, and a thorough review of grant requests, we ensure that your gift is used as efficiently and effectively as possible."
The Community Chest of Port Washington provides funding to programs for senior citizens, children, teenagers, and others in need--programs that serve approximately 6,500 (or one in six) Port Washington residents. The Community Chest also offers low-cost space in its building at 382 Main Street, to nonprofit tenants, helping them achieve their missions.
