Give to Grow: Seventh annual event scheduled

For four days, the Sabetha community has an opportunity to give to local non-profits that uphold the community. The seventh Annual Give to Grow Match Day exists to encourage people to give to their favorite local charitable causes. These 58 local organizations support our people, programs, places and even our pets!

In-person donating begins at 7 a.m. Friday, Nov. 18, at The Creative Farmhouse located at 918 Main Street in Sabetha. Donations also will be accepted online or at various locations around town Friday, Nov. 18, through Monday, Nov. 21.

This year, $73,000 in matching funds are available for all non-profit funds, and total donations to each fund will be prorated — up to $5,000 — to determine their percent of total challenge bonus. Match Fund donors include Ray and Jeannie Bachelor, Kent and Donna Saylor, Anonymous, Wenger Manufacturing, Ag Partners Coop, United Bank and Trust, Paul and Betsy Tedman, Edelman’s Home Center, Morrill and Janes Bank, Rainbow Communications and the GSCF Board of Directors group.

Following the Give to Grow event, the Greater Sabetha Community Foundation (GSCF) will be at the Window Opening on Friday, Nov. 25, to share the success of Give to Grow and will accept donations that night. Come and enjoy treats and pick up an invitation to the Community Celebration Gala, which will be held on Saturday, Jan. 14, at The Main Event.
