East Texas Giving Reaches New Heights On East Texas Giving Day
East Texans opened up their wallets on Tuesday during East Texas Giving Day and really came through to support East Texas non-profit organizations.
The fourth annual fund raising event for East Texas non-profit organizations received more than $1.3 million dollars during the 18 hour awareness program that will benefit programs right here in our community. Those funds will go towards 183 of the 185 registered non-profits on the East Texas Giving Day website serving the 32 counties that make up East Texas. The $1,308,861 was raised through 3603 very generous donations.
When compared to last year, a total of $750,000 was raised for 158 area non-profits. More organizations are benefiting from the generosity of East Texas this year. Thank you for your support.
