The Hiram Elementary School 5th grade Beta Club members are definitely feeling the spirit of giving this holiday season. They decided they wanted to help a local organization, Helping Hands, with items they may need to help those in need.
Hardy Family Automotive Group graciously matched Helping Hands of Paulding's donations (up to $10,000) for the entire month of November. This essentially gave Helping Hands more bang for their fundraising buck by receiving two donations instead of one. The marketing staff also assisted the charitable organization by creating a custom page on the Hardy Automotive website specifically for them. Thanks to this, Helping Hands was able to generate more interest and awareness for this fundraising opportunity.
