The 2019 Extraordinary Give raised more than $10 million for nonprofits throughout Lancaster County.
In the Southern End, it also worked to achieve a less well-known goal - increase visibility of nonprofits' and the work they do.
Six local organizations work together year round to provide services to the Southern End.
Now they're joining forces for a special event geared to raise funds to assist them with the work they do.

This year it’s going to the middle schools.
Until now, the SWEEP weekend food program has only been available to elementary students. Starting later this month, it will expand to include sixth graders at the Swift and Smith middle schools.
For the fifth year, Solanco Neighborhood Ministries will be collecting nonperishable food during the fair parade.
The ministry will be trying to fill a large red wagon pulled by a truck from Providence Auto.
