Gail Friedlander and Paul Young had no idea, when they decided to offer a $500 matching grant to raise money for HAVA's Frisky Fund, how wildly successful it would be. An astonishing total of $1,075 was raised in private donations. In addition, the South Bend Elementary Booster Club donated $300 to the grant - proceeds from their annual Christmas Store. Add in Gail and Paul's $500 and the total infusion of money into the Frisky Fund was a whopping $1,875. The Frisky Fund provides emergency medical care for stray animals in need, and the funds are depleted on a regular basis. THANK YOU to the many community members who contributed to the success of this Matching Grant. If they could speak, the animals you help with your generosity would thank you as well.
