As part of Give More 24, Southwest Washington’s annual day of online philanthropy (www.Give-More-24.org), the Parks Foundation is bringing back Swing More 24, a fun, interactive way to raise funds to support parks, trails and recreation throughout Clark County.
On Thursday, September 22, local people, including mayors and city councilors, business owners and employees, the Parks Foundation board, and other community members, will take to the swings and ask for community support during their “swing shift.”
On Thursday September 22, go to www.tinyurl.com/swingmore
- Donate as little as $10 or as much as you want, and under “additional questions,” indicate which participant or municipality you are donating to support.
- Then go on Facebook, Twitter or NextDoor and let your friends and neighbors know that you gave, and they should, too!
- Visit the park and give your swing-shifters some moral support!
