Giving Season is here!
Today is the beginning of my favorite season. This season is marked by what I can only describe as community tenderness. Over 36 days, we are united in generosity.
During the Giving Season, we hear stories from locals that stop by our office to make gifts to their favorite nonprofits. Every year, at least one young child brings a piggy bank with them and we count their gift in coins. We see donations that are earned from lemonade stands and youth fundraisers. And the generational gifts – grandparents, parents, children – make us so proud to live here, to do the work we do.
Every gift, any size matters because our community needs your support. You matter.
Old Bill’s Fun Run Giving Season starts today. Over the next 36 days, I hope you’ll choose to support the nonprofits doing work that you believe in. We’ll do our part and help raise matching funds to make your donation go even farther.
Now is the season. By giving, you are the gift that keeps us strong.
