Real Change. Not Spare Change is a collaborative Clarksville community program that promotes alternate giving to community service providers who can provide a more lasting impact than simply giving money to people who are panhandling.
The idea is to redirect your generosity to an established, well-managed agency already working to provide a full range of life-changing assistance to people in need in the Clarksville community.
A donation to real change is an investment in long-term solutions.
