We are amazed at the incredible giving that has brought us to our campaign goal of $2,184,000 — WOW! Once again, the power and generosity of this community shines brightly. Our goal was to raise enough to serve 2,184 families in the coming year, and we did it — thanks to you!
Together we provided hope and help to change the lives of over 6,500 children, adults and seniors in our community! Heartfelt thanks to all the kids, schools, businesses, bankers, scouts, corporations, foundations, faith communities, volunteers, board, staff, donors, sleeper-outers, fireside disciples and Sleep Out superheroes. It truly takes a village. And what a village we have.
Your gifts, your time and your kindness make a profound difference for families and kids. Let us introduce you to a few of the people your generosity supports:
• Robert – whose Plymouth family was stabilized because a gift of $2,356 provided services like rent support and extended case management for a year – helping him, his wife and their kids.
• Karima – who was able to stay in quality early childhood care and education even when his mom was between jobs, thanks to a $1,208 gift from a donor.
• Brelee and Brent – whose Orono family of four avoided eviction, thanks to $756 raised by a Minnetrista family who slept out in their back yard and raised the money to help.
Our hearts, and the hearts of the families and kids who will have a better future because you care, leap with thanks for your help in making a just-in-time Sleep Out miracle happen.
