On #GivingTuesday 2016, very generous businesses, schools, and individuals (see below) donated $10,000 for Community Grants! An additional $31,380 was contributed to other funds that day for a total of $41,380!
In response to #GivingTuesday and community generosity throughout the year, the Community Foundation matched the $10,000 and distributed among six local food pantries in Pulaski County.
Open houses were held on #GivingTuesday, November 29, at the Community Foundation & West Central School Admin building. Visitors were treated to holiday goodies and conversation, and were invited to help decorate the Community Foundation's "#GivingTree."
