On Giving Tuesday, November 29, 2016, the Parsons Area Community Foundation hosted a Match Day at the Wall Family Center in Parsons. The purpose of the event was to celebrate giving back on this day internationally declared for giving, and to build endowment for local non-profits. To increase donations, the community foundation provided a match pool of $30,000. The results were astounding!
A total $91,952 in gifts were received, proving this community is filled with generous folks. With heartfelt gratitude, we thank all who participated.
