October 03, 2019 / Mike Crowley

Scoreboard watching never felt so good. Supporters and officials of nonprofits throughout Crawford County spent much of their Wednesday afternoons wearing out the refresh button on their web browsers and checking for the latest livestream on Facebook as the first-ever Crawford Gives exceeded expectations. Crawfordgives.org, the website for the 24-hour philanthropy fest, offered continuous updates on how much money had been raised, how many people had contributed and the top 10 organizations in terms of both amount raised and number of donors. With 91 nonprofits participating, more than 1,700 donations totaling $162,000 were made.
