Help area nonprofits during Texoma Gives

A 16-hour day of donations to nonprofits in a 24-county area is the purpose of the Texoma Gives program that will be occurring on Sept. 7, with many nonprofits in Young County participating.

The registration deadline for nonprofits was July 1, and to participate the non-profits had to meet certain conditions. In Young County, 13 nonprofit organizations are signed onto the program.

Young County has 13 nonprofits signed up for the program:

• Bethel Children’s Day Care Center
• Freedom Care warrior Project
• Graham Area Crisis Center
• Graham Area United Way
• Habitat for Humanity of Graham
• Humane Society of Young County
• North Central Texas College Foundation
• Olney Education Foundation
• Olney Senior Cub Center
• The Old Post Office Museum and Art Center
• The Refuge
• Turning Point
• Virginia’s House

The organization had to be a 501c3 public charity that is located in the Texoma counties, which include Archer, Baylor, Clay, Childress, Cottle, Foard, Hardeman, Haskell, Jack, King, Knox, Montague, Stonewall, Throckmorton, Wichita, Wilbarger, Wise and Young counties. The organization could not be a church, booster club or parent teacher organization, but school foundations were welcome.

Donations made on Sept. 7 will be tax deductible. Donations may be given starting at 6 a.m. and will be open until 10 p.m.

Nonprofits will be searchable by name and county on the Texoma Gives website and the minimum donation will be $25 with no maximum donation. The organization will accept credit or debit card donations from their website and you do not need to live in the Texoma area to donate.

To donate by phone, contact the Wichita Falls Area Community Foundation office from 8 a.m. through 7 p.m. on Sept. 7 at 940- 766-0829, and the donation will be taken over the phone or you may visit the nonprofit’s location and make your donations.
