GREENFIELD — You would just about have to live under a rock to not have heard about Match Day by now.
At least that was the goal of the event’s sponsor, Hancock County Community Foundation, and the 11 local nonprofits that stand to benefit from the special donation event.
There are signs, fliers, newspaper advertisements, T-shirts, buttons, a banner over U.S. 40 and even a 30-second public service announcement running on Greenfield-Central’s public TV station.
“We want to get this in front of as many people as we can,” said HCCF President Mary Gibble.
Match Day is a 24-hour matching gift event centered on 11 carefully chosen local nonprofits that serve the young, the elderly, the disabled, the hungry and everyone in between. The foundation will divvy up $33,000 of its funds among the groups to proportionally match gifts that are donated by the public to any of the 11 between 12:01 a.m. and 11:59 p.m. Tuesday.
