Holiday Giving

Each year, the Centra Foundation collects monetary donations to support local non-profit organizations, such as Shop with a Cop and Columbus Firemen’s Cheer Fund, to provide gifts for children in need during the holiday season.

Thanks to the support of our Members, Team Members, and local communities, we raised $52,866! Your donation will go directly to support organization(s) in your local community that give gifts to children in need.

On Giving Tuesday, Centra matched all donations to the Holiday Giving Program made on November 29 at $0.25 on the dollar, up to $4,000! That’s $1,500 more than last year!
