Mountain Watershed Day of Giving October 4

September 29, 2011

 Dear Friends of the Laurel Highlands,

 On October 4, 2011 the Community Foundation of Westmoreland County will hold its 2011 Day of Giving. The Day of Giving was created to encourage charitable donations in our region. Mountain Watershed Association will participate in the 2011 Day of Giving, meaning that for a 24 hour period starting October 4th at 12:00 AM your donation by credit card to MWA through the Westmoreland Gives website ( will be partially matched by the Community Foundation.

 As 2011 and the Mountain Watershed Association’s 17th year comes to a close, we continue to work toward comprehensive restoration of the Indian Creek Watershed. When we started this work in 1994, Indian Creek was a stream running orange and ravaged by abandoned mine drainage. With five passive mine drainage treatment systems now in operation and a sixth under construction, we are seeing dramatic and measurable improvements in Indian Creek.  We also continue to expand our Youghiogheny Riverkeeper program, which extends MWA’s vision of conservation, protection and restoration into the larger Youghiogheny River basin. We are currently building support and seeking funding to design and implement a comprehensive water monitoring plan in the Yough basin.

 Your support has helped to make this possible. Your donation through October 4, 2011 will work even harder as it will be partially matched by the Community Foundation for Westmoreland County. If you would like to renew your membership or make a contribution, please consider doing so on October 4, 2011 through

 Only credit card (MasterCard and Visa) donations received through during the 24 hours of October 4, 2011 (starting at 12:00 AM and ending at 11:59 PM) will be accepted and matched for this event. The Donate Now link will appear on at 12:00 a.m. on October 4, 2011.  No donations via check, cash or stock will be accepted. The minimum gift is $25. The maximum gift that an individual can give per organization is $10,000.  The Community Foundation of Westmoreland County is affiliated with The Pittsburgh Foundation.

 Thank you for your support of the Mountain Watershed Association.
