#ExtraGive to Compass Mark Kids Nov. 20th

We’re waving wild Muppet arms here at Compass Mark because Lancaster County’s Extraordinary Give is just days away. Why are we so excited? Every dollar donated to area organizations on Friday, November 20th will be stretched by at least $300,000 from the Lancaster County Community Foundation and other generous sponsors. Additional prizes are awarded throughout the day, giving organizations like Compass Mark Kids the opportunity to receive even more money for their programs. (For example, the first 10 groups to receive 50 unique gifts will receive an extra $1,000.) Learn more about Extra Give. Why Give to Compass Mark Kids?
