Great Community Give 2021: An Incredible Success!

April 22, 2021

On behalf of the Way to Go Board of Directors and staff, I wish to extend our most sincere gratitude for your overwhelming support during yesterday’s Great Community Give! Each of you delivered, helping us to shatter our original goal of $9,000 before noon. Collectively, 100 unique donors raised $13,321 to support low-income workers in Harrisonburg-Rockingham with essential transportation services. Overall, 116 nonprofit organizations, including many close partners of Way to Go, participating in yesterday’s annual event raised a grand total of $1.77 million for the Harrisonburg-Rockingham community.

We look forward in the coming weeks and months to sharing with you the impact your support is having on local households eager to access job training programs, employment opportunities, and other necessary destinations required for daily living. Your gift will do so much more than get a low-income worker from Point A to Point B – it will enable them and their families to better connect and engage with the community in which they live. You made it possible for these households to move forward in many aspects of their lives, and to keep their dreams alive.

With deep appreciation,

Benjamin Craig
Executive Director
