Six Events Scheduled for the Third Annual Volunteer Hardy Initiative
Six opportunities to learn about and support Hardy County nonprofits are coming up this August as part of the Community Foundation’s Volunteer Hardy initiative.
Volunteer Hardy began in 2014 with the intent of shining the spotlight on the vibrant community service sector and the organizations and volunteers who work tirelessly to make Hardy County thrive.
This year six organizations will participate by hosting fundraising events throughout the county during the month of August. Event details are as follows:
August 6th – Bake Sale at Tractor Supply in Moorefield at 10:00 a.m. hosted by Moorefield Girl Scout Troop 40139
August 20th – Homemade Ice Cream Social at the Mathias Schoolhouse Cafeteria from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. hosted by the Mathias Ruritan Club

August 21st – Bingo in the East Hardy High School Cafeteria at 2:00 p.m. (doors open at 1:00) hosted by the Baker Ruritan Club. Prizes include items from Longaberger, Pampered Chef and Thirty-One. $20 per player ($10 for an additional packet)

August 27th – Bake Sale & Car Wash at Kerr’s Sales and Service in Wardensville from 9:00 a.m to 3:00 p.m. hosted by East Hardy High School National Honor Society
Proceeds from these fundraisers will benefit the many valuable programs and activities of each organization, as well as the Community Foundation’s unrestricted grantmaking fund (Community Endowment Fund), which supports a wide variety of charitable causes throughout the county.
We invite and encourage everyone to help us thank and support our nonprofit organizations whose efforts play such a vital role in preserving the qualities of Hardy County that we all treasure. Mark your calendars today and plan to support one or more of these events.
