A local organization is celebrating the gift of giving.
NWA Gives hosted a rally in Springdale Wednesday with nonprofits from across the community.
The event pushed to Thursday, which is when NWA Gives will host 12 hours of “epic” giving. The fundraiser will be from 8 a.m to 8 p.m., with money raised going to those local organizations.
“We have over 280 nonprofits that are part of the day of giving,” said Chris Haas, co-founder of NWA Gives. “We just expect a generous outpouring from the community to help bring in the resources that the organizations need to be able to do their mission and their cause. “
Haas said the goal is for the community of Northwest Arkansas to become one of the most generous communities “on earth” and to raise awareness for the nonprofit organizations that need help.
