Bucyrus Beautification Project gets new tractor

Posted by Amy Vaughn on Tue, Jul 28, 2020

Have you seen the gorgeous hanging flower baskets lining Sandusky Avenue through downtown Bucyrus? If not, make sure you take notice the next time you walk or drive through town.

Pictured to the right are Harold and Marylyn Strang, two of the more than 40 volunteers that water these lovely baskets throughout the late spring, summer, and early fall. Harold is driving the new Bucyrus Beautification project watering tractor that was purchased thanks to funding provided by the John Q Shunk Foundation, Tractor Supply Company in Bucyrus, and the Walmart Foundation.

#Giving2sdayNow Results

Posted by Amy Vaughn on Tue, May 12, 2020

On Tuesday, May 5, The Community Foundation for Crawford County kicked off #GivingTuesdayNow, joining a global day of giving held specifically for the COVID-19 crisis response. Typically, there is only one #GivingTuesday in a calendar year, and it always occurs on the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving; however, organizers felt an additional effort was needed this year to raise money for operational expenses during these uncertain and challenging times.

Here locally, the Foundation referred to their 2-day online fundraising event as #Giving2sdayNow. The Foundation provided the fundraising platform, and any nonprofit could register and use the site at no cost to them. In addition, the Foundation matched the first $25,000 raised online, and this match was increased to $35,000 thanks to the generosity of Doug and Renee Leuthold. The Foundation also covered all credit card fees.

The 2019 Spirit of Philanthropy Award was presented by Foundation Board Chair, Dr. Pete Maynard, and President, Lisa Workman, via a surprise video to this year’s recipient, Tom Holtshouse, who was unable to attend.
