IDAHO GIVES to Local Nonprofits May 2, 2013

Neighborhood Housing Services (NHS) will participate in a state-wide giving day on May 2, 2013 called Idaho Gives.  This online fundraising effort will raise over $500,000 for hundreds of Idaho nonprofit organizations in one day.  From midnight -11:59pm a share of every dollar raised by Idaho nonprofits will be matched with funds from the Idaho Gives award pool. In addition, the top five organizations with the most unique donors will receive bonus grants.

NHS is excited to be a part of this day – the first of its kind in Idaho.  Donations given through Idaho Gives will support Paint The Town and the Buy A Bucket Campaign.  All proceeds will go to purchase paint to refresh the homes of senior and disabled homeowners in communities throughout Southwest Idaho.  This is the 31st year of Paint The Town, which has revitalized Idaho communities and provided much needed face lifts to 3,054 homes! By donating to Paint The Town on May 2, donors can double their impact and help NHS win additional funds from the Idaho Gives award pool.
