The Spirit of Giving

Foundation Celebrates the Givingest #Giving2sday Ever!

Posted by Amy Vaughn on Thu, Dec 05, 2019

 

For the 6th year, The Community Foundation for Crawford County held their annual fundraiser, #Giving2sday, on the global day of giving that occurred this year on December 3rd.

“This was our best year yet,” exclaimed Jennifer Stirm, Foundation Board member and Chair of their Development Committee. “Donors like knowing that their gift inspired a second one, as our Board set aside $25,000 to distribute to our participating funds on a pro-rated basis. Crawford County may have a small population, but it is large when it comes to generosity!” The preliminary tally of $177,400 which donors raised combined with the Foundation Board’s commitment means that $202,400 is being distributed to good causes in Crawford County.

Rain or Shine Volunteers Beautify our Community

The fountain at Millennium Park on the square in downtown Bucyrus has been closed for the year. Shown here are two volunteer board members of the non-profit organization Projects, Inc, Mike Hoffman, President, and Ken Cameron, along with Dick Hulsmeyer, a volunteer, as they recently worked to clean and shut down the fountain. “We are fortunate that each year Advanced Fiber Technology graciously stores the fountain cover when it is not in use,” said Ken Cameron. “Phil and Leonard, Advanced Fiber Technology employees, were allowed time to haul the cover uptown and helped us install it over the fountain for winter.”
