Community Foundation seeking Facebook likes

Tuesday is National Giving Tuesday, and the Emporia Community Foundation has come up with a unique way to bring attention to giving during the peak holiday shopping season.

Foundation Executive Director Shirley Antes says people need to like the group's Facebook page for a chance to win a $500 grant for their favorite charity.

So far, there are about 270 likes on the Facebook page. Residents who connect on Facebook will also be entered in a drawing to win one of two Chamber of Commerce gift certificates.

The Community Foundation serves Lyon and surrounding counties, helping individuals or private organizations with their giving plans. For more information, go online to www.emporiacf.org or find the Community Foundation on Facebook.
