San Bernardino, Calif. – Give Big San Bernardino County is on October 30, 2018. For those unfamiliar, it’s a 24 hour on-line fundraising web-a-thon with hundreds of nonprofits throughout our County participating. This is the fifth year that Give Big SB County has been held, helping raise over $1.3 million during that time. The event is hosted by The Community Foundation and is supported by the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors.
Nonprofits in our county are greatly challenged to provide for the needs of the disadvantaged. There are many difficult issues our people face such as extended economic crisis, unemployment, high housingcosts, natural disasters and social instability. There are over 36,000 homeless students. One in four children live in poverty. Every day thousands of people look to a nonprofit for assistance.
The fundraising web-a-thon is the day before Halloween, a day where we could make a choice to support a worthy cause that would be good for all of us. Imagine being able to help all those in need? This would be a better place for all our us to live.
