Today is the day for the Permian Basin to give back the Permian Basin Give Back. Today is a day set a side to support local charities. With over 50 charities raising money for their each individual causes, you can help by giving.

The Permian Basin is known for its strength and resilience. Throughout history, the people of this region have faced challenges head-on with grit and determination. In 2020, the COVID-19 Pandemic and dramatic decline of the oil and gas industry have created a perfect storm in our community, yet the nonprofits of Midland and Odessa continue to ensure the citizens receive critical services and support.

Giving days are designed for individual donors who may feel that the amount they could donate would be too small to have an impact. However, there is power in numbers, and area nonprofits will use Permian Basin Gives as an opportunity to encourage individual donors to make a bigger impact by giving at the same time.   Permian Basin Gives 

Today May 18th, you have until midnight you donate to one or more of your favorite charities. These organizations only survive off donates and grants. These organizations do so much for people in our communities.

I am proud to say I am on the board of directors for 3:11 Ministries. We serve underprivileged kids in our community from Christmas, to school supplies and clothes, to prom. 3:11 not only serves the kids in the MISD school on special occasions but all year long.  Last year 3:11 Ministries helped over 2400 children at Christmas last year and that would not be possible with donations. So today if you feel inclined please give.
