The Panhandle Gives is going now until December 3!
The fourth annual Panhandle Gives campaign runs from Monday November 25th through Tuesday December 3rd which is known as Giving Tuesday. Giving Tuesday was started in 2012 as a global generosity movement. The Panhandle Gives is how our area takes part in this worldwide action.
When the Amarillo Area Foundation started The Panhandle Gives to help raise awareness of needs that nonprofits have, they raised $70,000. In just it's fourth year they now have a goal to raise $1,000,000 which will be distributed to 132 local non-profits!
If you would like to help us during this critical time, you can go to our Facebook page where we will have a link to give online. You can also drop off a check made payable to "The Panhandle Gives" and including "Life Challenge" in the memo at any Amarillo National Bank, Happy State Bank or FirstBank Southwest location during the campaign dates. Gifts made this way will get amplified by the AAF's amplification fund.
We have a project underway right now to double our capacity in 2020. We need just $60,000 more. The Panhandle Gives presents us a great opportunity to reach this goal even faster!
So add these dates to your calendar and let's make this year the most successful Giving Tuesday ever!
