WICHITA FALLS, Texas (TNN) - The 5th annual Texoma Gives is now underway!
As of 10 p.m. Thursday, more than 5,100 donors gave over $1.46 million to 193 organizations.
The 16-hour day of giving will featured around 200 nonprofits in North Texas and Southern Oklahoma this year.
This year, instead of meeting at the community foundation office for the closing ceremonies, the nonprofits met at River Bend Nature Center.
Texoma Gives was more important than ever this year, with many local nonprofits having to cancel their own fundraisers throughout the year due to the pandemic.
All of the participating nonprofits can be found on the Texoma Gives website, searchable by name, location or cause.
Donations are made directly to each organization by credit card and the minimum donation amount is $10.
Tila Grant was at the event kick-off at 6 a.m. and spoke with John Welter and Christine Sanderson of Scarlet Letter Ministries.
