September 8, 2023 | By Michael H. Babcock

Applications have officially opened for Copper Shores Community Health Foundation's #GivingTuesday. Nonprofit organizations who are interested in partaking in the 7th annual #GiveCopperCountry are encouraged to apply.

 #GivingTuesday happens on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, November 28 this year, as a way for the community to give back to the nonprofit organizations that make Houghton, Keweenaw, Baraga, and Ontonagon counties more healthful. Copper Shores Community Health Foundation will match a portion of community donations.
