Thank you to all the 200+ donors who have already given toward our "Growing Together" fundraising campaign for the citywide Long Beach Gives day of online giving. As of 9:50pm on Thursday evening, September 22nd, we've raised over $13K and are close to our goal this year, thanks to 224 donations. Below is more about today, and a list of a few partner organizations you can still support before 10am tomorrow, September 23, 2022.
Our teammates came up with big goals and have been working hard to meet them. This year we even had two of our new board members fundraise!
