Brighten Up St. Johns

#GivingTuesday – Brighten Up St. Johns Campaign Update

St. Johns Lights picture by Waterlink WebThank you St. Johns!

We are on our way to raising the $5,000 necessary to replace burned out light strings and add lights to 5 more trees along N. Burlington Ave.

Shoppers are donating in the cans set out at local businesses, folks online are donating via the GoFundMe campaign, and the recent “round up to the nearest $1.00” campaign week sponsored by St. Johns Ace Hardware showed how much everyone in St. Johns appreciates the holiday lights.

Donations as of Nov. 28th

  • GoFundMe campaign: $785
  • St. Johns Ace, Round Up to the Nearest dollar: $571
  • Donation cans at local businesses: $323

In all, we have raised $1679 toward our goal. We still have over $3,000 to raise! Please be generous.

Even as I write this a crew is out adding lights to the trees in St. Johns. Donate today, #GivingTuesday.

Thank you!
