LANCASTER, Pa. — Lancaster's Extraordinary Give kicked off on Friday, Nov. 18. The organization highlights hundreds of non-profit organizations.
The non-profits are promoting their missions at Decades Retro Arcade and Bowling Alley.
The Lancaster County Community Foundation's Extraordinary Give is a 24-hour fundraising blitz to support community groups that started at midnight.
"These are supporting organizations that are helping kids and families, the environment, healthcare, education, the arts, so many different causes, and it’s a day that our community can come together, make a donation to a cause they care about, and cheer for each other and lift each other up during a really important time of year," said Tracy Cutler, executive vice president of the Lancaster County Community Foundation.
Officials with Decades Arcade and Bowling Alley say they are excited to allow organizations to deliver their message at their business.
"We want our guests to engage the different organizations, a lot of the time the different relationships and conversations that people have together wind up leaving lasting impressions of the organization," said Chris Trendler, the general manager and partner of Decades Lancaster. "[This creates] longer support that lasts [a] longer time.
In total, donors have the option to support more than 400 organizations throughout the Extraordinary Give.
