Chicken kissing part of effort in Osborne County

OSBORNE – High school and grade school students joined the effort to raise funds for Osborne County Community Foundation’s February match month effort, with an FFA Kiss-a-Chicken coin jar competition bringing in more than $1,400.

A different grant recipient was showcased on Facebook each of the 28 days of the month, and a grant writing workshop for local nonprofit organizations was held.

As a result, the community foundation’s fund-raising goal was far exceeded, and Osborne County will benefit from more than $50,000 from the Hansen Foundation.
