This year marks the 71st anniversary of the Big Spring Area Community Chest. It began in 1949 when a group of local citizens formed what was then called the Newville Community Chest. Their mission was to collect funds for five community organizations. The goal that year was set at $2,150. More than 50 volunteers went door-to-door in the Big Spring community asking for donations.
Much has changed since then. Today the Community Chest supports 25 groups that provide services to the Big Spring community. Our goal for our 2020 campaign is $23,600. We ask that you will consider a donation to help us meet the needs of the groups listed and celebrate this milestone.
This year's campaign runs from September 8-November 15, 2020.
On behalf of the Board of Directors, we wish to express our sincere thanks and appreciation for your contribution.
