To the Editor:
The Manhattan East Bridge Pier Project has now reached its first goal of raising $20,000, with the help of 85 donations. We also have received confirmation from our anonymous donor that a matching $20,000 donation will be made in early January 2014, which will put us at $40,000 and well on the way to our goal of $50,000.
For many of you, now might be a good time to ease your tax liability by making a tax-deductible contribution to our project. You can do online at www.mcfks.org, or by sending your check to the Greater Man-hattan Community Foundation (East Bridge Pier Project), 555 Poyntz Ave., Suite 269, Man-hattan KS 66502.
We hope to reach our goal by this spring and have the “Manhattan Welcomes You” sign in place by summer.
