Evergreen selected for Art Van Charity Challenge


HOLLAND, MI  -- Since its inception in 2009, the Art Van Charity Challenge has partnered with over 209 charities to raise nearly $20 million. In their seventh year, they welcome 124 charities to become part of this exciting initiative. Evergreen is one of only a few organizations selected from Ottawa and Kent Counties.                                                                                                            

The Challenge is powered by CrowdRise and begins May 18 and ends June 22.  Evergreen Commons will only receive credit for donations given online during this timeframe.  So gifts need to be made online at www.crowdrise.com/hscc-artvan2015. The charity raising the most funds will receive a $75,000 bonus grant from Art Van Furniture!  Bonus challenges will take place each week that could raise even more funds that provide programs and services for older adults through Evergreen. 
Those interested in helping raise funds can go to the Evergreen CrowdRise page for Evergreen at this link (www.crowdrise.com/hscc-artvan2015) to either make a donation or create your own site to help raise funds for older adults.  You can click on “Donate” or the black “Fundraise for this Campaign” button to set up your own account to help out.

“Evergreen is honored to be selected as one of the organizations in the Midwest to be supported by The Art Van Charity Challenge,” commented David Knibbe, President/CEO for Evergreen. “Funds raised through this challenge will provide programs and services for older adults in need of assisted care. We ask the greater community to help us reach our goal to receive the $75,000 bonus grant!”
