New This Year!

Berean Community Center is excited to be a part of the Macy’s Shop for a Cause Charity Challenge. It’s a friendly fundraising campaign launched by Macy’s through Crowdrise where local charities across the country compete to raise the most money with the top teams winning grand prize cash donations. We’re ready to raise as much money as we can so we can win the $100,000 grand prize donation.

How You Can Help

The challenge starts on July 11th at 12 pm ET and runs through August 9th. Please consider joining our team as a fundraiser. By setting up a fundraiser for our cause and reaching out to your network of supporters, you can help us reach our goal of providing 400 L.L.Bean backpacks filled with school supplies to children of the community and get us closer to that grand prize.

It takes less than five minutes to set up a fundraiser. All you have to do is go to Crowdrise:
and click ‘Fundraise for This Campaign.’ Every donation makes a difference, no matter how big or small.

Thank you in advance for your support.
