Communities of faith collaborating to help neighbors in need
Many people seek way to help those they see are in need in their community. IHS does that every day. It's what this organization was created to do: help our neighbors in need. That assistance comes in many forms. Sometimes it means creating opportunities; sometimes it means joining what's already happening because of others' great ideas.
Here are two exciting opportunities where your help can make a difference.
charity event to support the displaced residents who still seek permanent housing.

in State College.
On May 22 & 23, Interfaith Human Services (IHS) will participate in Centre Gives, a 36-hour online giving event sponsored by Centre Foundation.
From 6 a.m. Wednesday, May 22, to 6 p.m. Thursday, May 23, donors can visit CentreGives.org to help Interfaith Human Services (IHS) raise funds that will further IHS’s mission of helping our neighbors in need.
Donations will be matched with $100,000 from Centre Foundation and will also make IHS eligible for additional prize money. Optional line: Last year, IHS raised over $4400 during Centre Gives; with the support of the community, we hope to raise more in 2013!
Visit CentreGives.org on May 22 & 23, and in the meantime, spread the word about Centre Gives and what it can do for the community!
