Several local non-profit agencies will soon be getting an early Christmas present.
A Siouxland foundation today handing out more than $100,000 in grants.
That money was part of the Siouxland Big Give event.
The Siouxland Community Foundation raised that money last month during a one-day giving event. It has now been split and distributed to local organizations all around Siouxland.
Marie Buckley of the foundation said giving back to people is always a good feeling, especially around the holidays.
“It was a great feeling. It’s always fun to give away money. I’ve served on numerous that have received and try to raise money but it’s a lot more fun to give it away,” said Buckley.
The Big Give was organized by the community foundation to raise awareness of non-profits needs and services.
