Celebrate National Philanthropy Day with HSVC


Wednesday, November 15th, is National Philanthropy Day! This day is celebrated each year to shine a spotlight on the importance of working together for the common good. As a private nonprofit organization, our shelter relies on philanthropic deeds from our supporters to continue providing vital services to those in need. Acts of philanthropy can come in all kinds of shapes and sizes, see below how you can help HSVC this National Philanthropy Day!
