Give to the Max Day returns Thursday

CUYUNA — The Cuyuna Range Youth Center will be one of many nonprofit organizations throughout the state that will ask people Thursday to donate to their favorite charity online for the fourth annual “Give to the Max Day.” Minnesotans will be challenged to raise as much money as possible for nonprofit organizations and schools in 24 hours.

Give to the Max Day was created to increase giving to nonprofits across the state. Donations on Give to the Max Day can be made through GiveMN.org, a charitable giving website that helps Minnesotans discover, support and engage with nonprofits and schools.

Last year, the youth center received $2,380 in donations that were matched by the Hallett Trusts Foundation. This year the foundation will match up to $5,000. Money donated tot he center will benefit its mission of offering a safe, fun place for all youth to gather and be guided by caring adults in building healthy friendships, exploring interests and learning skills that enable them to make positive decision throughout their lives. Donations will be used to fund projects, such as their garden and the purple martin bird project.
