On Tuesday, March 24 the annual “24 Hours of GRACE” campaign will ask you to make a gift to GRACE and send the request on to your friends.
Last year, “24 Hours of GRACE” was successful enough to help fund GRACE services through the start of the summer months. The success was due, in very large part, to the efforts of donors who helped the campaign go “viral”.
We ask for you to be a campaigner for GRACE and spread the word about “24 Hours of GRACE” to your friends! Every Friday this month will feature reasons you can share with your friends when asking for their support.
Here are just a few reasons:
- Last year, the GRACE Food Pantry had more than 7,000 visits and provided over 500,000 pounds of food for hungry families.
- Nearly half of all GRACE clients are the “working poor”, stretching meager wages from a low-paying job, sometimes two jobs, to make better lives for themselves and their families.
- Over the last six years, 248,545 lunches were served to children through Feed Our Kids.
We hope to build on last year’s “24 Hours of GRACE” success, and we can reach even more people with your help!
Start now! 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.
Look for more reasons you can share with your friends next week. And please, when “24 Hours of GRACE” arrives, please give generously and ask your friends to do the same.
