Thanks to everyone who supported CHEC

during the bi-annual Giving Challenge

held on April 9 & 10, 2024.

The Giving Challenge is a 24-hour virtual giving event that brings together nearly 700 local nonprofit organizations with their passionate donors and community members to support causes and missions they care about while creating transformative impact.

 During each Giving Challenge event, your donation to CHEC, up to $100.00, will be matched, once again, 1:1, by the Patterson Foundation.  Your participation in this online fundraiser helps us continue to grow and expand programs and events that align with our core mission.  We're so very grateful to our repeat Giving Challenge donors and to everyone who supports us through this and other events!
