RAOC Seeking Donations for Matching Grant
Published on The News-Gazette Web site on Saturday August 22, 2015
A donor has given The Rockbridge Area Occupational Center a matching grant for every dollar donated in the month of August up to $10,000.
RAOC participates in the Neighborhood Assistance Program (NAP), and donations over $500 may qualify for a 65 percent tax credit on Virginia taxes.
The Rockbridge Area Occupational Center has provided employment and vocational training for adults with disabilities in Rockbridge County since 1969. Every donation, large or small, directly benefits these adults, a spokesman said.
RAOC will have a booth at the Rockbridge Community Festival with information as well as jewelry handcrafted by participants of RAOC. Area residents can buy jewelry and make a donation to RAOC at that time.
