PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) - A Paragould organization was recently awarded non-profit status from the Internal Revenue Service.
Dustin Rumsey with Pay it Forward Paragould said they received a letter from the IRS Monday in regards to their 501c3 status.
"Obtaining this 501c3 status will open up a lot of doors for us to do so much more I'm excited about the things ahead," Rumsey said.
Rumsey said he started Pay it Forward Paragould in 2013 with the goal of sharing his love for community service.
"The response has been more than I ever could have imagined," Rumsey told Region 8 News. "Since then we have done countless drives to help local schools, brought little free libraries and buddy benches to Paragould."
Rumsey said they'll also be providing 2nd graders with a book on kindness sometime soon.
