La Crosse Public Library hosts Care and Share Expo

The holidays are the season of giving and sharing and on Saturday the La Crosse public library hosted the Franke foundation’s seventh annual Care and Share Expo.

The expo gathered 45 local nonprofits and charitable organizations for an Alternative Gift Fair. People who attended the fair were able to view the booths of local groups and make same-day donations in the name of those on their holiday lists.

This year, the Franke Foundation is matching all donations up to $1,000 for each organization.

On top of raising funds, the expo also recruited volunteers for the nonprofits in attendance.
