The Smith Mountain Lake Charity Home Tour is taking applications from charities that want to be considered for participation in the 2014 tour.
To be eligible, charities must have 501C3 tax status and address human needs in the areas surrounding Smith Mountain Lake. The deadline for receipt of applications is Oct. 25.
Charity selection will be based on documented impact of each charity’s activity in the SML area. The selection committee will meet in early November, and the charities that will benefit from next year’s tour will be announced shortly thereafter.
“The deadline for charity applications comes very soon after this year’s tour [Oct. 11-13]. So charities interested in being considered for participation next year need to be assembling their application packets,” said Sharon Jones, head of the 2014 selection team.
This year’s tour still is in need of volunteers to help staff the eight homes. Those who wish to help support the tour or a specific charity can do so by becoming a sponsor or patron.
For more information on how to become a sponsor or patron or for more information about this year’s tour, visit www.smlcharityhometour.com. Charities interested in being considered as 2014 beneficiaries should visit the website or contact Jones at 710-2466 or toddie1904@aolcom.
