The Big Day of Giving
La Familia Counseling Center, along with 500+ other local nonprofits, will participate in a national event on Tuesday, May 5th, 2015: the Big Day of Giving charity event. The Big Day of Giving is a 24-hour giving challenge that will launch on May 5th from midnight to midnight. Last year, the region raised over $3 million and ranked #2 in the country on that national giving day! However, La Familia Counseling Center was only able to raise roughly $3800 to support our annual Summer Lunch Programs.
This year, La Familia Counseling Center needs to raise at least $10,000 and engage at least 100 donors to support and fund our annual Summer Lunch Programs, which includes, Youth Summer Lunch Camp, Club Excel and our parent program. These programs consist of lunches for over 160 children, learning and physical activities, while promoting the importance of the development of youth both mentally and physically. This year we are striving to make these programs stronger by creating a program for parents, while promoting parent engagement and health.
