Spend & Give Challenge
Help us give up to $100,000 to local charities, and you decide how we give it away!
We can all use some positivity right now, and we need your help in keeping our commitment to our community strong!
Help Us Reach $100,000!
Now through September 30, 2020, any time you use your Apple Debit Card, a portion of every purchase* will go to one of four local charities, totaling up to $100,000. The more you spend using your Apple Debit Card, the more we give back to our community. It’s a great way to help others while taking care of yourself!
Here is where we stand as of September 14th:
Help Us Give Away the Money
To determine how we distribute the funds, we’ve set up a poll for you to decide! Based on your votes, our donation will be divided between these local organizations! Vote daily, and get your friends and family to vote each day too!
