Day of Giving Creates a Stronger Future!

The generosity shown during our Day of Giving is one of the reasons we are proud to call Ripley County home. We received over $100,000 in donations all of which are eligible to receive a match from a private foundation.  These donations will provide for the needs of our communities now and forever! 
Our Day of Giving was proof that we are stronger when we work together. Youth Move Southeast used the day to support local food pantries.  Countless individuals stopped by to donate personal hygiene items for our local food pantries, with Thrive Market donating an entire carload of supplies! Batesville Area Arts Council (formerly known as Rural Alliance for the Arts) sold Project 229 books, which supports their mission to provide opportunities in arts education, expression and enjoyment; we provided a sneak peek into Ripley 200 a project of Ripley County Tourism commemorating the county’s bicentennial.
Thank you for all who donated!
