WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAW) - Another matching grant for the 2020 edition of Share Your Holidays is raising the total to a record $90,000!
NewsChannel 7 got word Thursday evening that the Judd S. Alexander Foundation is adding $20,000 to the effort. It joins The Dudley Foundation, The B.A. and Esther Greenheck Foundation, The MacDonald Foundation, the Miller Halverson Family and Incrediblebank to reach $90,000. Meaning, every dollar you give will be doubled up to $90,000.
Since there is no overhead to Share Your Holidays all the money donated goes to the charities, The Salvation Army in Wausau and Neighbors’ Place.
In it’s first 17-years, Share Your Holidays raised more than $818,000 and tons of food. Experts say one dollar donated to a food pantry can buy three to four meals.
