SML Good Neighbors launched a new giving day in 2022 to benefit nonprofits in Bedford and Franklin County, Virginia. SML Gives is an online giving event that provides nonprofits the opportunity to fundraise, gain exposure and build relationships. It is also an opportunity for the community to come together to raise as much money as possible to make a big impact for the participating nonprofits. 

In Fall 2021, Nancy Horton a longtime volunteer and supporter of SML Good Neighbors, made a pledge of  $25,000 in matching funds to launch a scholarship program. 

SML Good Neighbors launched a scholarship matching campaign, beginning immediately, in hopes of doubling every dollar donated to the scholarship up to $25,000 by May of 2022. >
