June 3rd is a unique day in Muskegon. Why? It's a day when your good deed can be matched by the Community Foundation of Muskegon County is presenting "Match Day" where your gift, of up to $1000 bucks will be matched for any number of amazing organizations in town that work tirelessly to help those in need, support the arts, and help our community thrive in ways that quite often go unseen.
We wanted to do our part to help shine a little light on some of these incredible organizations. Thing is, we're kinda known for that already and pretty familiar with those who do good all over town already. So while discussing the project with the Community Foundation about highlighting some of them, our only request was that they pick out who we talked to. We got the list and we so happy that we found some friends and met a few new people along the way and as we continue on, we'll work too, to show you more about them and the work they do. Well, we'll just keep doing what we do for everyone, that's kind of our thing.
Do keep in mind, there are 40 plus non profit organizations that are involved and we got a chance to talk to a handful. If time and space allowed, we'd sure try and fit them all in, but take a look at the video's below to see if something strikes your passion to help and you can find the complete list of the organization that could use a hand on the Community Foundation for Muskegon County's website! You'll find that linked in the photo to the right!
If you think about it, this is a pretty simple way to make any donation go as far as it can. Any gift, $5, $10, $20.....it's matched and creates a bigger impact. Those smaller gifts too, they add up quickly and any gift, no matter the size, that is from the heart...that's what matters to help out the things that are important to all of us. Matching that...that's some serious community team work.
For now, some short chats with some old friends and some new ones. Take a listen to some thoughts about who you can help on Match Day June 3rd with the Community Foundation of Muskegon County. It starts with a short announcement from Heidi Sytsema about how it all works.
