Giving Challenge ends Dec. 31
Generous supporters are challenging community members to raise $200,000 for nonprofit Pisgah Legal Services by Dec. 31. Local people can join the Here for Justice Giving Challenge by making a tax-deductible gift before the end of the year.
Donations will be used to support the charity’s work to prevent homelessness, stop domestic violence, increase access to health care for local people with low incomes, and much more.
“Times are tough and many of us are feeling the squeeze, especially at the grocery store,” said PLS Community Engagement Manager Megan Quattlebaum. “Imagine living on $12,000/year – that’s the average yearly income of a Pisgah Legal client – and trying to support yourself and your family. We rely on the community to continue our work to help local people in need.”
“We are so grateful to the supporters who have issued this challenge, and we hope folks will take advantage to join the challenge and make a donation the end of the year,” said Quattlebaum.
PLS has offices in Highlands/Cashiers, Asheville, Burnsville, Hendersonville, Marshall, Newland, Rutherfordton, Spruce Pine and Waynesville. Pisgah Legal employs staff attorneys and relies heavily on the pro bono legal services of approximately 250 volunteer attorneys.
Last year, more than 645 people in Jackson and Macon counties were helped by Pisgah Legal Services.
