Clear Spring Challenge
Because of the ongoing plight of many citizens in the Clear Spring area as a result of the recent floods, the Community Foundation would like to challenge the citizens of Washington County to make a contribution to the Clear Spring Challenge. The Foundation will then match all donations up to $10,000, resulting in a $20,000 grant to the Clear Spring Area Ministerium for them to distribute equitably and as needed. The event starts today and runs through September 2. The hope of the Clear Spring Challenge is to help relieve some of the economic hardship the citizens of Clear Spring have faced over the past two months.
Contributions can be made by check to the Community Foundation of Washington County MD, Inc. at 33 W. Franklin St, Suite 203, Hagerstown, MD 21740, or by credit card on this website by clicking on the "Donate" button on the left-hand side. For more information about the Clear Spring Challenge, please call the Community Foundation at 301-745-5210.
