Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many local nonprofit agencies have been forced to cancel their spring fundraisers.

In many cases, these events serve as the agencies’ signature fundraisers. The lack of fundraising dollars will leave many local charities scrambling to meet needs, which in many cases have been heightened during this pandemic.

In response to this, The Courier and Review Times have launched Give Kindness, a chance for the community to support those who support us. In addition, local nonprofits can list their mission statement and wish list on the online directory for free, giving community members a better understanding of what services the agency offers.
