OCEF looking for a little Sharin’ o’ the Green

March 09, 2011

Brandon Twp.- For the third year in a row, an anonymous donor has challenged the community to participate in “Sharin’ o’ the Green,” offering to match community donations to the Ortonville Community Emergency Fund food pantry up to $2,000.

Under “Sharin’ o’ the Green,” if a member of the community makes, for example, a $25 donation to OCEF, the anonymous donor will match it with another $25 donation of their own. The fundraiser received its name because of its proximity to St. Patrick’s Day. Donations eligible to be matched will be accepted through the end of March.

Cash donations for the non-profit organization can be placed in jars marked with shamrocks at local businesses including Brandon Tire, Bueche’s Food World, The Citizen, Clarkston Brandon Community Credit Union, First Impressions, Ken’s Coney and Papa Bella’s. Checks made payable to OCEF may be sent to O.C.E.F., P.O. Box 282, Ortonville, MI 48462. For details call St. Anne Catholic Church at 248-627-3965.
