Giving is contagious. Hour after hour, the donations continued to pour in at the Greater Sabetha Community Foundation’s second annual Give to Grow Match Day. The event was held Friday, Nov. 24, both online and in-person at a downtown Sabetha walk-in location. At the walk-in site, donors registered for a drawing that awarded an extra $50 to the person’s chosen organization. Drawings took place every hour for 12 hours. By the end of the day, 383 monetary gifts by 161 individual donors totaling $85,473.24 had been given. Average dollars given per donor was $530.89. Added to the day’s total was $36,750 in matching funds, bringing the grand total distributed to 31 area non-profits and projects a little more than $122,000. The top three non-profits receiving donations were the following: Kanza Mental Health Foundation, $20,625; Sabetha Health and Wellness, $11,275; and Neighbor-2-Neighbor, $10,393.24.
