Posted in All Education

The culmination of the “Give to the Max Day” challenge will be Friday, January 18 at the Fillmore Central gym in Preston. The Preston Area Community Foundation was challenged by the Spring Valley Community Foundation to see who could have the most money donated in one day – November 15.

The Preston Foundation was successful thanks to a “match and more” contribution from F & M Community Bank, Dan Christianson. Preston’s donations totaled $11,905.

But there was more to the challenge! The Foundation receiving the largest amount of donations would also receive Miken Sports equipment that could be given to their local school.

Miken Sports, Caledonia, makes exclusive baseball equipment. Company representatives will be on hand January 18 at the basketball game between the Fillmore Central Falcons and the Kingsland Knights to present four bats and two sports bags to the Preston Foundation. A consolation prize of two youth bats will also be given to the Spring Valley Foundation.

The two Foundations are under the umbrella of the Southern Minnesota Initiative Foundation. Tim Penney, executive Director of SMIF is also expected to be on-hand for the presentation which is scheduled for approximately 7:30 p.m. between the B-squad and varsity basketball games.
