SARASOTA — The Patterson Foundation is increasing its contribution to help those impacted by the deadly tornado in Calhoun County, Ala.

The foundation had partnered with radio station The JOY FM and promised to match up to $33,000 in donations received from the station’s listeners.

Debra Jacobs, president and CEO of The Patterson Foundation, announced this week it would increase the amount of the initial donation up to $50,000.

“The outpouring of generosity and success of the initial $33,000 match inspired us to increase our commitment,” Jacobs said. “This community cares for one another. It is our intent that the $50,000 will give a boost to the local economy and help them begin to rebuild with purpose and hope.”
