Giving Hearts Day raises $24,000 for Lakes Crisis
The Lakes Crisis & Resource Center asked its home community for help -- and the community responded.
The organization was able to raise about $24,000 on Giving Hearts Day, Feb. 11, a fund-raising event where Dakota Medical Foundation agreed to match all donations to participating non-profit agencies dollar-for-dollar.
Though the final report on the fund-raiser has not yet been completed, the early tally indicates that LCRC doubled the amount it received from the fund-raiser in 2009, according to an LCRC spokesperson.
