Spokane's Vanessa Behan Crisis Nursery is among the possible winners in a contest started by national retailer Shopko.
Called "Choose the Charity," the contest will run through March 12 and allows Facebook users to cast votes for a favorite charity. The winning charity will receive a $10,000 donation, organizers said.
Shopko's Facebook page is www.facebook.com/shopko. The winner will be announced on March 13.
In addition to Vanessa Behan Crisis Nursery, other eligible charities on the Facebook page ballot are:
- The Children's Center (Salt Lake City, Utah)
- House of Hope (Green Bay, Wisc.)
- One World Community Health Centers (Omaha, Neb.)
- St. Marcus School (Milwaukee, Wisc.)
Those were selected, a Shopko press release said, based on high quality of services that they provide, the strong support that they enjoy in their communities, and track records of proven results.
