The Independence Bowl Foundation delivered donations on May 6 to Holy Angels Residential Facility and Sci-Port Discovery Center as recipients of the Charitable Donation Program.
Started in 2013, the Charitable Donation Program takes $1 from every ticket sold to the bowl– including team allotments – and distributes it evenly among four non-profit organizations. Wounded Warrior Project® and College Football Assistance Fund were the other recipients. Each organization received $8,685.
Members of the Independence Bowl Foundation delivered the donation to Holy Angels during a cookout at the Holy Angels gazebo at 11:30 as part of Give for Good, a 24-hour online giving challenge led by The Community Foundation.
Later that afternoon, members of the Independence Bowl Foundation also were in attendance during Sci-Port’s Give For Good festivities to deliver the donation.
“Sci-Port was thrilled to be chosen as one of the Independence Bowl Foundation’s donation program participants in 2013,” Ann Fumarolo, President and CEO of Sci-Port, said. “As a nonprofit science center, additional support from the community is critical for our success.
“We look forward to future opportunities with the Independence Bowl, including taking part in next year’s Fan Fest.”
