You Can Help Holt Bosse Split $5K to Feed the Hungry

Having worked with and for a number of non-profit organizations across the region through the years, the team at Holt Bosse in St. Joseph has a soft spot for helping such organizations in a variety of ways. This year, the full-service marketing firm anchored in downtown St. Joseph is asking you and I to help determine how to split up $5,000 to help feed the hungry in our midst.

Holt Bosse wants to make the holidays a little sweeter for three local nonprofits. Co-President & Strategic Director Patrick Bosse says, “We will split $5,000 between three charities, but we want the public to help us decide how much of the money we will give to each one.”

To determine the percentage of the donation each nonprofit gets, you can cast your votes online for your favorite among the three charities. The more votes each organization gets between now and December 19th, the larger their check from Holt Bosse will be.  Patrick Bosse and Co-President Dave Holt will write all three checks on December 20th.

Holt says, “It’s a friendly, but heated competition,” and adds that this is the third year their company has provided extra notoriety and funds to a different selection of local nonprofits at year-end. He says, “Hopefully it’ll help encourage other organizations and people to give where they can, as well.”
