What is Give Local 757?
Give Local 757 is a community-wide day of giving held in Hampton Roads each year in May. It is an opportunity for the community to support their favorite local charity, like the Peninsula SPCA! Donations are made to the Peninsula Community Foundation online during this one day of giving and designated for the donor’s favorite charity, like the Peninsula SPCA! Donations are amplified with $55,000 in cash prizes awarded to participating charities.
It’s a Match!
Beloved supporters of the Peninsula SPCA, Henry & Judy Morris, have issued a challenge! The first $1,000 in donations on May 9 will be matched 100% by Henry & Judy Morris!
The Little Bear Fund
This year, Give Local 757 donations to the Peninsula SPCA will support the shelter’s Little Bear Fund. The Little Bear Fund was established in 2008, in memory of Little Bear Morris, with the goal of helping shelter animals with special needs to get the veterinary care they need in order to heal and be adopted into safe, loving homes.
