A Story of Local Giving
DIG was established to promote the overall health and well-being of local low-income residents by meeting furniture needs. Through a Community Giving Foundation: Sunbury grant, DIG's Good Night's Sleep Fund will purchase new mattresses, box springs, bed frames and pillows for clients.
"As a new nonprofit in the area, we are blown away by the number of requests we've been receiving for furniture assistance. Support from members of our community means that we will be able to continue to provide this much needed resource to our most vulnerable families. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for helping us instill dignity through household goods." (Emily Mrusko, DIG Founder)

With more than $3 million in assets from the sale of the Sunbury Hospital in 2005, Sunbury's goal was to improve healthcare in the local community. Grant investments supported programs and projects focused on children's health, oral health, coronary care, and issues regarding the working poor. After affiliating with the Community Giving Foundation in 2006, Sunbury continued to provide for charitable healthcare needs and expanded its mission to meet a multitude of charitable needs in the greater Sunbury area.
Through Community Giving Foundation: Sunbury, donors are establishing meaningful impact both now and into the future.
