Mission Lexington announced that more than $30,400 was received in donations from this year’s Midlands Gives online fundraising event. We were able to reach our goal because of matching funds from multiple anonymous donors and placed #21 out of 409 organizations.
“We cannot thank the community enough for the outpouring of support not only on this day, but every day,” said Robin W. Bowers, Executive Director of Mission Lexington. “We work with Lexington County residents daily who are in crisis; not just during Corona or floods, God has provided us the ability to stand in the gap of need every day!”
