Give Local Lancaster blasts past goal

Fate handed Give Local Lancaster another day of donating and the community rallied, giving 36 local nonprofits more than $60,000.   
The online total of $60,865 is expected to rise by about $30,000, once prize incentives and matching funds from sponsoring businesses are added, according to the J. Marion Sims Foundation, which led the local effort.
“One of the marks of a healthy community is the level of engagement of its citizens. I’d say we get high marks there indeed,” said Susan DeVenny, president of the foundation.
