The money will go to 26 non-profit agencies.
Local residents opened up their wallets during the Frederick 48 fundraising campaign last month. Between September 27th and 28th, they donated more than $250,000 which will be used to help 26 local non-profits.
Additional donations were also collected through the October 12th deadline.
"The people of Frederick County recognize the importance of the essential services provided to needy families in Frederick County," says Rev. Jonathan Switzer, Pastor of the Crossroads Valley Church and organizer of the event, in a statement.
"Last year, we raised $28,000 and this year the donations poured in and the results were incredible," he continues.
Some of the organizations which will receive these donations include Advocates for the Homeless, Alzheimer's Association, Big Brothers and Big Sisters, the Frederick Rescue Mission, the Religious Coalition, Mission of Mercy and the Frederick Community Action Agency.
Organizers say 100% of all donations will go to these non-profit organizations. And all donations are tax deductible.
"People are still feeling the pinch from the last recession, but they dug deep in their pockets to support the poor among us this year," says Reverend Switzer.
Prior to the online drive, citizens who received $100 rebate checks from the County were urged to donate that money during Frederick 48.
The Patty Pollastos Fund accepted all online donations and acted as the fiscal agent.
The organizers of Frederick 48 say a meeting will be held on Friday at noon at the C. Burr Artz Public Library in downtown Frederick, where the checks will be presented.
