DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) — Houston County Gives Day has been set for Friday, April 20 from 4 – 6:00 p.m. at Eagle Eye Outfitters. The event serves as the kick off for the Spirit of Service Day to be held on April 21.

Nonprofits who wish to participate must have a 501-c-3 and a physical office location in Houston County. Interested Houston County nonprofits must email their logo and contact information to houstonctygives@gmail.com by March 30 to participate. All nonprofits who have not participated in previous years should send their 501-c-3 by March 30. T-shirts for the event must be ordered by March 30.

Each qualifying nonprofit will be invited to set up a table to share their mission with potential volunteers, donors and clients. Refreshments will be available for purchase and Eagle Eye Outfitters will have special offers for customers. This is a great way for companies and individuals alike to meet with multiple organizations with which they would like to volunteer and support. It also serves as a major media outreach for those in need of the agencies’ services.

“Every year our goal is to reach more and more people about the services of the area’s nonprofits. Houston County Gives Day is a perfect way for individuals or groups to find out how they can help as well. One of the most inspiring aspects of this day is seeing all these agencies working together to help people. It’s really amazing,” said David Duke, Executive Director of Wiregrass 2-1-1, Southeast Alabama.

The public is invited to like https://www.facebook.com/HoustonCountyGivesDay/ for additional announcements.
