They’ll Be Calling You…

 

Community volunteers and members of the Board of Directors will be making their annual Phonathon calls on Saturday, March 9 to encourage Port Washington residents to support the Community Chest of Port Washington. They need community volunteers to help make about 700 calls to prior donors. 

The Community Chest and its fundraising efforts have been in existence for almost 65 years. From the door-to-door campaign to the popular Thanksgiving Day Run. The Community Chest supports programs and expenses not always funded by individual giving and that provide a wide range of services including, mentoring and assistance for youth and families, meals and other help for senior citizens, scouting, athletic and academic scholarships, special education programming, cultural arts activities, affordable quality day care, and food distribution to local food pantries. Additionally the Community Chest carefully screens non-profit organizations (fiscal, organizational and programmatic reviews) before funding is committed.
