NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Mike Osborne) -- Middle Tennessee’s giving spirit has apparently been unfazed by tornados, a pandemic or economic collapse.

Last week’s annual Big Payback giving event sponsored by The Community Foundation raised a record $4.3 million. That’s up $200,000 from last year’s record haul.

The 24-hour giving marathon pulled down well over 31,000 individual gifts directed at 988 local charities.

Nashville’s faith-based Martha O’Bryan Center received the most donations, collecting some $71,000 dollars for its charitable work on behalf of the mid-state’s low income residents.
