November 12th, the Gettysburg Community Soup Kitchen’s acting Board Chair, Donna Mountfort and our Community Outreach Liaison, Kathleen Redding staffed a table at the Adams County Community Foundation’s “Giving Spree” fundraiser. The event was hosted in the Ballroom of the Gettysburg Hotel. Fifty Adams County non-profit organizations were represented. Each had an area to showcase their organization and to answer donors’ questions. After donors made contributions to their chosen organizations, cards were sent to the gift recipients of their choice.
At last count, the Foundation’s “Giving Spree” collected a total $113,105 for the fifty non-profits organizations. A portion of this total will be matched by an anonymous donor. The Soup Kitchen will get a portion of the matching funds. Please check back to find out what our total gain will be from this wonderful Community Foundation fundraiser.
