It’s GiveChoose day—the day each year that area charities join forces to drum up support and donations over a 24-hour period.
At the half-way point today, the donation drive had raised $93,545. The money was given from 853 donors and earmarked for 78 local nonprofit organizations.
Ninety charities are working with the Community Foundation for Loudoun and Northern Fauquier Counties to put on the GiveChoose campaign. The program has raised almost $400,000 for charities in Loudoun and Fauquier counties since it began four years ago.
The charities benefitting from GiveChoose donations represent programs supporting animal welfare, the environment, health, education, community development and more. Giving continues at www.givechoose.org until midnight.
