Duluth Organizations Take Advantage of Give To the Max Day

Most of the Organizations Set A Goal and Donors Can Match It

DULUTH, Minn. – When you add thousands of people and they give millions of dollars in donations that equals to Give To the Max Day in Minnesota.

It’s the ninth year for the campaign where anyone can donate to causes they support.

More than $14 million have been raised so far and it doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon.

Just by looking at these kids having, fun you wouldn’t think they share space with a dance studio when they come to class everyday.

“It’s a lot of hands on it’s a lot of movement, but it’s based on child development,” said Spirit of the Lake Community School Director of Administration Angela Mejdrich.

That’s why Give To the Max Day means so much to┬áthe school, which has a non-traditional style of teaching.

They want to educate a child’s mind, body and spirit.

“Every little bit that comes in helps, so it might just be going into teacher training or helping cover costs,” said Mejdrich.

This worldwide day of giving began in 2009 and millions are raised. You can make a donation on the GiveMN.org website after searching for your cause of interest.

Over at the First Witness Child Advocacy Center they want to help end child abuse. They say no dollar amount is too small.

“Twenty dollars gets us into one more classroom with prevention education,” said First Witness Child Advocacy Center Forensic Investigator Jackie Halberg.

“When we get a donation, whatever it may be, we really see that as a commitment to kids in our community,” said Halberg.

On this Give To the Max Day, remember you never know how far your dollar will go to make a difference in the life of someone in need.
