Oh wow are we excited! Here we have not yet started our capital campaign ‘officially’ but you – our donors – our Good Samaritans have already helped us reach 20% of our online goal for fundraising! That’s right – $50,000 toward our goal of $250,000 by the time the doors open on our new project. Every dollar counts and even more so in this incredible project that will see a low-operating cost, low upkeep building that will see a significant increase in how much more of your donor dollars can go to our programs, such as feeding, clothing, and shelter for those in greatest need!
Thank you to each of you for your generosity! Because we receive less than 10% in government funding (directly to our daycare) we are very reliant on each of you to help us do this work each and everyday! This new facility will help us replace an ageing facility – long beyond its life, and to increase our capacities in other areas such as our soup kitchen and men’s emergency shelter while adding more daycare spaces for the neighborhood along with 16 more affordable housing suites to the hard-to-house.
We are still on track to have shovels in the ground by July so thank you once again for helping us get a big head start on our capital campaign!
