Atkinson Community Foundation Fund (ACFF) will be donating $100 to five non-profit organizations in the Atkinson area during the 79th Atkinson Hay Days celebration.

A dozen white buckets with the foundation's logo will be placed at local banks and businesses throughout town. Drop your name and number in the bucket for a chance to win. Five names will be drawn during the Hay Days Community barbecue at 5 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 8 at the city park. 

"You will be contacted by an ACFF member to select your non-profit. Our foundation focuses not only on giving back, but also paying it forward," said Erin Jelinek, ACFF fund advisory committee member. "All you have to do is enter your name and number and we will do the rest."
