Opportunity Enterprises is one of 17 local non-profits to benefit from the Porter County Community Foundation’s upcoming GIVE Day, a one-day giving holiday which will take place on November 8, 2012 beginning at 12:01 am and ending at 11:59 pm. Anyone who visits the Simply Amazing Market, 2801 Evans Avenue, Valparaiso, between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm on November 8 and makes a donation of $25 or more will receive a free small bag of popcorn. This offer applies only to those donations made in person at the market on November 8.
Donors can also give online at portercountygiveday.org, or drop off checks in-person between 8 am and 5 pm at The Times, 1111 Glendale Blvd, Valparaiso. Only gifts received on November 8, 2012 through GIVE Day, will qualify for matching funds.
On this one day only, gifts made to OE as part of GIVE Day will apply for matching funds from a pool of more than $50,000 contributed by generous sponsors through the Porter County Community Foundation. Donations made to OE as part of this event will support the construction of an integrated apartment building which includes fully handicap-accessible apartments at its Lakeside property.
