Guide to Giving spreads the word for non-profits

There’s only one more week for local community groups to get their submission into the Salmon Arm Observer’s Guide to Giving.

There’s only one more week for local community groups to get their submission into the Salmon Arm Observer’s Guide to Giving.

This is a free service offered by the paper for the holiday season, which allows charitable and community groups the opportunity to raise awareness about their organization, its benefits and, most importantly, provide a way for the community at large to step up during the season of Christmas giving, and support local groups.

Many citizens would like to help others, but may be unsure about where to make a contribution. The Guide to Giving is designed to offer suggestions for donations or volunteer contributions.

If your group would like to make a submission, it must be delivered by Wednesday, Nov. 28. The guide will be printed in the Observer in early December.

Submissions must be a maximum of 200 words. They can be dropped off to the Observer office at 171 Shuswap St., faxed to 250-832-5140 or emailed to newsroom@saobserver.net.

If there are questions, contact Tracy Hughes, editor, at 250-832-2131.
