Seven Kershaw County nonprofits will participate Tuesday in a 24-hour online giving campaign called Midlands Gives. The Central Carolina Community Foundation is using Midlands Gives to raise money and awareness for 150 area charities.

“We are hoping to work together as a community and help one another. This is a collaborative effort.” United Way of Kershaw County (UWKC) Director of Communications Pam Spivey said.

The UWKC, Food for the Soul, Habitat for Humanity, Midland’s Women’s Center, Community Medical Clinic of Kershaw County, Fine Arts Center of Kershaw County and First Steps are the seven nonprofits that hope to benefit from Midland Gives.

Charity representatives will host a “Giving Station” at TruVista located at 1637 Springdale Drive in Camden from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. The Giving Station will provide assistance for online giving as well as information about the participating charities.

“If you don’t how to give online, you can go to the station and get assistance to that,” UWKC Volunteer & Resource Coordinator Maria Spring said.

Representatives want to encourage community members to stop by to learn more about how they serve the local community.

“It will be a great opportunity to raise awareness and to help people understand what we do,” Spivey said.

All donations are tax deductible and must be a minimum of $20. One hundred percent of each donation will go to the charity of the donor’s choice. The Central Carolina Community Foundation will have a “bonus pool” providing extra funds for charities based on how much money is raised.

Those interested in keeping track of the progress of Kershaw County during Midland Gives can do so on Facebook and Twitter at  #MidlandsGives or #MagnifytheMidlands.

“We are excited, it will be a lot of fun. We will have a good time,” Spivey said.

To donate, visit on Tuesday.
