Patch Donates $1,000 After Newsletter Charity Drive
You helped us direct donations to five local nonprofits!
Thanks to your input, you've helped us direct $1,000 in donations to five local nonprofits. That's the result of our "newsletters for charity" drive that ran for 30 days starting May 10. We've made the donations of $200 each to the five nonprofits that qualified.
The rules said we'd donate $1 per newsletter signup for every 501(c)3 nonprofit that received at least 25 nominations. Five nonprofits received more than 25 nominations in the campaign:
- Accessible Play in Florissant.
- Bethesda Thrift Shop in Ballwin.
- Donald Danforth Plant Science Center in Creve Coeur
- Crider Health Center in St. Charles County.
- Salvation Army Midland Division with locations around the region.
Patch committed to donating up to $3,000, depending on the number of sign-ups we received. Those five organizations each received more than 25 nominations, but among the 500 sign-ups we received, none got much more than the 25 minimum, so we're increasing the donation to each of the organizations to $200, for a total of $1,000 in charitable donations from Patch.com.
Please visit those sites to learn more about each of the nonprofits. Thanks to our readers for visiting Patch and helping us support nonprofits in the region. And we hope you enjoy the Patch newsletter!
