“Our community has depended so much on our nonprofits to help us through this difficult year, and Give Ozarks Day is a great way to show them how much we care,” CFO President Brian Fogle said in a statement. “We hope people will be as generous as they can be, no matter their means. With the latest stimulus checks arriving right now, Give Ozarks Day comes at a great time for our community.”
