Giving Opportunities

Press Conference Held on 3-16-20



Current Cancellations:

We have decided to cancel or postpone many of our events until May 31, 2020.

What we’ve learned from the spread of COVID-19 in communities across the nation and abroad is that social distancing and reducing opportunities for person-to-person contact are among the most effective means of prevention. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, state officials and others also recommend not holding or participating in large events.
