May 11th was Give Local 757 day in Hampton Roads- an opportunity to unite our community around causes in which we truly believe and help nonprofit organizations connect to the larger community.
This year three Charger Champions led the way in our fundraising for Give Local 757. Thanks to Anna Boyer, Shannon Spain, and Christy Archer for their dedication to our school and to Anna Chapman at Grafik Trenz for donating shirts to our Champions for that day!
This year Isle of Wight Academy raised over $7,000 in 24 hours because of many generous donors. Because of the wonderful support we received, Eley Duke with Duke Automotive sponsored a $1,000 prize award bringing our grand total for the 24 hours to over $8,000!! Way to go Chargers and thank you Duke Automotive!
The support from events like Give Local 757 helps to provide our school and students with needs for classroom programs, technology and capital improvements to our campus.
Thank you to everyone who contributed to this year’s Give Local 757 campaign-we couldn’t do it without you-proving once again that our IWA community is Charger Strong!
It’s coming!! May 11th is Give Local 757 Day!
