Give Back To Valley event deemed a success

(KAIR)--The Give Back to Valley Match Day 3-day match event has come to an end, with more than $100,000 raised, and 710 gifts given to 42 Valley Falls-area nonprofit organizations.

Arranged by the Valley Falls Community Foundation, the Give Back to Valley Match Day raised a total of $125,930.02 dollars during the event's run, which lasted from midnight, Friday, September 22 through 11:59 Monday night, September 25. In-person matches were also included as part of the 2023 fundraiser, with those donations presented during last Saturday's Grasshopper Falls Day event.

Match Day is held annually, with all donations presented to participating organizations then matched, meaning more monies for those groups to utilize in their community efforts.

According to the website's totals, Jan's Kids earned the most donations, with $14.7 thousand dollars. That organization is followed by Valley Falls Athletic Association, earning $11.6 thousand, the Valley Falls Historical Society gained $11.3 thousand, Valley Falls Lions Club Community Improvements earned more than $8.7 thousand, and the Delaware Township Library earned $8.5 thousand, rounding out the top five.

In the top gift counts, Jan's Kids took the top spot with 61, the Valley Falls Historical Society earned 59 gifts, Delaware Township Library earned 47, the Valley Falls Athletic Association gained 41, while Valley Falls FFA and Ag Education rounded out the top five, receiving 40 gifts.
