Tying them together: community service and donations


School is just around the corner and with the start of the school year comes the beginning of school sports and organizations. These groups often hold fundraisers and seek donations from local businesses to help pay for a variety of things associated with their activity.

Youth teams and groups seeking donations or raising funds now have the opportunity to invest in the community before receiving funds, according to Bob Bonnar, publisher of the News Letter Journal, who explained the program to the Newcastle City Council on July 17.

“We can use some of these dollars we are spending as businesses to accomplish things,” Bonnar told the council, referencing the many potential community improvement projects throughout Newcastle.
