Confer donated to 216 raffles over the past 12 months


We’ve completed another annual cycle of giving. I’m always curious how many charity events we donate to across the region, so I track them from October 1 to September 30.

In 2017-2018 we donated to 216 charities, benefits and raffles. To everyone of these events we donated $50 gift cards for the Made in America Store, an awesome retail mecca for people who value products proudly made in the USA.

Even though our year of tracking our donations has ended, the giving doesn’t stop. We just keep on going. We love to give to the community, with a special emphasis on local events and fundraisers that help smaller organizations like churches, non-profits, scout troops and, especially, families that are in great need in times of health issues and other crises.

So, don’t hesitate to ask for gift card. It’s the least we can do to help local organizations and families succeed in trying times and a trying economy.
