On Tuesday, March 27 the annual “24 Hours of GRACE” campaign will ask you to make a gift to GRACE and send the request on to your friends. The success of the campaign depends on the efforts of donors who help the message go “viral”.
Last year, “24 Hours of GRACE” was successful enough to help fund GRACE services through the start of the summer months. We ask for you to be a campaigner for GRACE and spread the word about “24 Hours of GRACE” to your friends!
This week we conclude listing the reasons you can share with your friends when asking for their support. Please know there are many more reasons to send $25, $50, $100 or more to help those in need in our community.
Here are a few reasons:
- The GRACE Community Clinic had nearly 10,000 patient visits in the last three years, and doctors, nurses and other medical professionals volunteered more than 9,800 hours of their time.
- More than 15,000 individuals from nearly 5,300 families were served by GRACE in the last three years, and received more than 81,000 services.
- Over the last three years, GRACE provided $924,329 in Transitional Housing costs; and $5,812,691 in Emergency Assistance costs.
We hope to build on last year’s “24 Hours of GRACE” success, and we can reach even more people with your help!
Please reach out to your friends and associates and let them know what GRACE does to help those in need. You can drive the campaign viral—GRACE needs your help now more than ever.
Next week our Executive Director, Shonda Schaefer will express her appreciation for your gift, and your work in getting others to support the GRACE mission. Then, when “24 Hours of GRACE” arrives the following Tuesday, please give generously and ask your friends to do the same.
