On November 19, you can join thousands of people across the community and the world to support more than 500 local organizations. Chuck and I are excited to be part of Lancaster County’s largest day of giving!
If you didn’t already know, the Lancaster County Community Foundation are the proud host of the Extraordinary Give. Since they launched the first Extraordinary Give in 2012, our community has raised more than $63 Million for regional organizations.
Donations per capita in Lancaster County are among the most generous in the nation! How cool is that?!
It’s all thanks to the dedication of the participating organizations, members of our community, and sponsors who help stretch every dollar that is donated.
This year Chuck and I are passionate about Creative Hope Studios who are sponsored by Manos House. Our dear friends Jose Rios & TJ griffin have come together to provide custom built high quality affordable recording studios for schools, youth based agencies, rehabs and treatment facilities specializing in Juvenile Justice, education and rehabilitation.
Jose Rios “FLX SOUNDZ” is a professional music producer and engineer with over 15 years of experience working in the music industry.
TJ Griffin is a youth mentor, program provider, trainer and the founder of The Vision Program which provides programs, curriculum and workshops for at-risk youth predominately in the Juvenile Justice system.
There is much more to their talents and credentials but in a nut shell and in their words “𝘞𝘦 𝘰𝘧𝘧𝘦𝘳 𝘺𝘰𝘶𝘵𝘩 𝘰𝘱𝘱𝘰𝘳𝘵𝘶𝘯𝘪𝘵𝘪𝘦𝘴 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘴𝘦𝘭𝘧-𝘦𝘹𝘱𝘳𝘦𝘴𝘴𝘪𝘰𝘯, 𝘤𝘳𝘦𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘷𝘪𝘵𝘺, 𝘤𝘶𝘭𝘵𝘶𝘳𝘢𝘭 𝘢𝘸𝘢𝘳𝘦𝘯𝘦𝘴𝘴, 𝘤𝘢𝘳𝘦𝘦𝘳 𝘦𝘹𝘱𝘭𝘰𝘳𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯, 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘮𝘶𝘴𝘪𝘤 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘳𝘢𝘱𝘺 𝘥𝘶𝘳𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘵𝘰𝘶𝘨𝘩𝘦𝘴𝘵 𝘵𝘪𝘮𝘦𝘴 𝘰𝘧 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘪𝘳 𝘭𝘪𝘷𝘦𝘴.”
My personal goal is to get 100 $25 donations. This Friday (November 19), Chuck & I will be at the Lancaster Cigar Bar for the Extra Give.
Creative Hope Studios will also be at Blazin J’s and The Pop Up Shop.
We would LOVE your support, so come out and Celebrate how Amazing and Giving Lancaster County really is….we should all be grateful to live in this beautiful community. It’s not perfect, but it’s ours.
