North Texas Giving Day huge success for library

September 22, 2015 by Rosealee Hoffman

The East Parker County Library was the recipient of $6,955 in donations last week through the North Texas Giving Day. The library will also receive bonus funds from the event in late October.

"In the past we have also received donations for a week or two following the event, so we are thinking we will come very close to our 'ambitious' goal of $10,000," said librarian Sue Ellen Shaw. "We are very elated about this."

The City of Aledo also increased funding for the library from $12,000 last fiscal year to $15,000 this fiscal year.

Shaw, who received word of the increased funding on the same day as the donations, said it was great news all the way around for the library.

This year's event raised a total of $33.1 million for over 2,000 North Texas nonprofits.
