Please help LAPS kick off our Spring 2015 fundraising by joining the First Community Foundation for the Raise the Region campaign

Raise the Region is an opportunity for people who care about their community to join together to raise money for LAPS and their other favorite nonprofits. It is a 24-hour online event starting at 6:00 pm on Wednesday, March 11, 2015 and ending at 11:59 pm on Thursday, March 12, 2015.

Participating in this event will boost the affect of your valuable donations, because Blaise Alexander Family Dealerships has generously donated $150,000 that will be used to stretch a portion of every donation dollar made at www.RaiseTheRegion.org. Your donation can also help raise additional support for the nonprofit you select by qualifying them for monetary prizes.

Here’s how to participate:
At 6:00 pm on Wednesday, March 11, 2015 through 11:59 pm on Thursday, March 12, 2015, visit www.RaiseTheRegion.org on your computer, smartphone, or other device. Click on “Select an Organization” and search for LAPS or Lycoming Animal Protection Society. Make a donation from $25.00 and up on the secure Raise the Region donation form.
