Your Hub for Charity Giving
WCVB-TV and TheBostonChannel.com invite you to experience CommonWealth 5, an interactive initiative that combines the power of television and the Internet to connect volunteer benefactors with local non-profit organizations in your community.
It's like a reverse auction for charitable items. You've got great stuff to donate, and this tool connects you with people looking for exactly what you have. Organizations bid for your donation, and you can choose which one you'd most like to assist.
Susan Wornick helps a 'Buyer Beware' on NewsCenter 5 with exclusive investigations into consumer rip-offs. If scams are happening to other people, they could be happening to you too. Learn how to avoid clever tricks and scams.
Dancing with the StarsWe have watched Dancing with the Stars all season and now we have to miss the finale for a football game? I think that is just cruel!
Community 5 Hub for GivingThis is one of the better ideas that I've seen for using the power of the Internet to help people in need. Bravo! We had a desktop computer in excellent condition that we no longer needed and were looking for a place to donate it. We simply posted the item on the Community 5 website, and we received 8-10 responses within the first day. After reviewing them all, and what were looking to use it for, we chose a terrific organization in Dorchester that helped in job training and after school programs. They even arranged to come pick the item up. A really great program Thanks again.
