Give to the Max Day – November 16th, 2011

Give to the Max Day is an annual day for Minnesotans to come together on GiveMN.org to raise as much money as possible for nonprofits in 24 hours. Last year over 42,000 donors participated raising over $10 million for Minnesota non-profits, and more than 25 of our friends and neighbors showed their support for Longfellow! Our goal is to double what we raised this year, and so we’re shooting for $1,500! You can learn more about giving to the Longfellow Community Council on Give to the Max Day by visiting http://longfellow.org. Thank you for supporting Longfellow, and making our neighborhood a great place to live!
