The Humane Society of Southeast Missouri met their goal of raising $35,000 for Giving Tuesday. Officials announced a Matching Gift Challenge as part of Giving Tuesday to assist the fundraising efforts for their organization’s new adoption and education center. Every gift and pledge made up to the total through December 3, 2019 was matched by JSE Surplus and Purina. Officials announced earlier in the year they were raising money for a new 12,000-square-foot-facility. Officials say they raised over $1million of the $2.7 million project for the new Adoption and Education Center. They said the goal is to raise 70 percent before the groundbreaking in June.
