Do moreStart spreading the word!  On Thursday June 4, the Daniel A. Payne CDC will be participating in the Do More 24 Campaign: a local movement that brings together nonprofit organizations, companies, and people committed to making a difference through focused online giving for a 24-hour period.

 

Powered by United Way of the National Capital Area, Do More 24 raises much-needed funding for local nonprofits that create opportunities for underserved populations.  The CDC’s goal for this year’s fundraising campaign is to raise funds to support its STEM, Robotics, and GED programs.
