Thanks for helping us reach our #GivingTuesday goal!
Our goal was $1,800 – to support six school stream team water monitoring efforts up and down the Shiawassee for 2019. Not only did we raise $1,820, but the Cook Family Foundation has contributed another $1,000 – to make our grand total $2,820!
Friends was just one of 17 participating nonprofit organizations that were a part of this endeavor to #raiseUPshiawassee and we wanted to share the results with you:
- Almost $72,000 raised among all of the participating organizations
- Over 200 new donors
- Approximately 80 new volunteers who expressed interest in volunteering among the organizations
- A wide variety of other benefits to the organizations, including:
- 5 class registrations
- 3 new members
- 40 bags of food donations
- 3 garbage bags full of gently used stuffed animals for children
- 7 game/book donations
- 2 pet adoptions and additional foster animal adoptions
- Lots of pet food and cleaning supplies
That just goes to show that we are stronger together!
