Whether you're trying to come up with yet another way to use leftover turkey or wrestling decorations out of the attic, the transition from fall to winter is a time of anticipation and celebration for many families. Not everyone in Wake County, however, has a warm kitchen in which to prepare food or a home in which to store their treasured holiday memories. Today, on Giving Tuesday, we ask you to take a moment during your preparations to remember those who need your help this holiday season.
Your donation to Family Promise of Wake County helps us support families in their journeys from homeless to safe, affordable housing. Any size gift provides concrete help to a family in need:
- $10 provides one day of food for one person in our emergency shelter.
- $20 provides one night of emergency shelter for one person.
- $50 provides one week of housing for a family in our transitional housing program.
- $200 provides one month of housing for a family in our transitional housing program.
As we reflect on what we are most thankful for, it is the support of our generous donors and volunteers. You allow us to do the work we love and serve our families as they face one of the most difficult challenges a family can face. Right now, your gift counts double. All new and increased donations we receive by February 1, 2018 will be matched through our partnership with the Stewards Fund. If you've been considering donating for the first time or increasing your annual gift, now is the perfect time to do so. Please donate today.
