FLXGives, the 24-hour giving movement in our community, is almost here!
On November 13th Cornell Cooperative Extension of Steuben County is joining nonprofits from all across the Finger Lakes region that day to raise money for a cause. And CCE Steuben’s cause is an updated, accessible bathroom facility for our 4-H’ers near the fairgrounds show ring and cow barn.
The kids spend days at the show pavilion and barns during the summer grooming their animals and preparing their projects to showcase for the judges. Many of them have spent all year long preparing for this chance to earn a blue ribbon. They deserve a bathroom that is close to their stalls…one that is handicapped accessible…and safe! Half of the money has already been raised and a local architect has drawn up plans for the building. Our goal for FLXGives Day is $12,000 which would put us on the road to groundbreaking.
Donations can begin at 12:01 a.m. on November 13 and must stop at 11:59 p.m. CCE Steuben’s donation page can be found at http://bit.ly/buildthe4Hbathroom. The Steuben County 4-H & FFA Market Animal Sale Committee will match the first $2,000 raised in donations. So please bookmark our donation page and help us reach our goal on Nov. 13.
A few ways you can really help include:
Visit our fundraising page and show your support by sharing it with your friends and family on social media. Post, tweet, and share your love for our 4-H community!
We are so excited to be a part of #flxgives and hope you will help us reach our goal on November 13th!!
