The Cassville Education Fund is working to raise $5,000 by the end of May to qualify for a matching $5,000 grant. To help them reach that goal, several area businesses joined forces to support them on the first of four Wildcat Wednesdays in April.

For a donation of $5, employees purchased Wildcat Wednesday stickers that permitted them to dress down at work that day. The fundraiser lasts through the end of April.

To participate, businesses can contact the Cassville Area Chamber of Commerce at 417-847-2814.
