Got an e-mail from the Strengthen the Good Network today that I thought I’d share.
This from the Gulf Coast Community Foundation of Venice website:
“In an effort to direct additional funds to nonprofit organizations in the areas devastated by the hurricane, the Board established the Hurricane Charley Disaster Relief Fund with an initial gift of $25,000 and voted to match contributions to the Fund up to $200,000. The community met the match this weekend.”
First to note is that they increased the level of the match to $200,000 from $100,000, and indication of the volume of support.
I’m sure STG-related contributions helped in meeting the goal (and I’m working to find out how much, if we can). Great work all, and thanks for working to strengthen the good!
(Hopefully, we won’t need it again for Frances!)
