The 7th annual Raise the Region is underway. It’s a 30-hour online giving campaign that provides an opportunity for people who care about their community to come together and raise as much money as possible for hundreds of local nonprofits in Columbia, Montour, Northumberland, Lycoming, Snyder and Union counties. One of the local nonprofits taking part is Agape here in Bloomsburg. Raise the Region began at 6 o’clock last night and continues through 11:59 tonight. The First Community Foundation of Williamsport and Blaise Alexander Family Dealerships are the primary organizations behind Raise the Region.
