This year we are investing in people – people not only impacted by this pandemic, but the circumstances and barriers of life in poverty. Here’s a letter from our Executive Director, Keith Adams.
Thank you for being a big part of this small revolution of kindness! Thousands of our neighbors have counted on this community moved by love, and you have not disappointed!
We’ve got to keep this momentum of kindness growing and we can during this Love in Action season by making a special Love in Action donation and joining us for this year’s Love In Action banquet.
You are the heroes of this small revolution! Last year during Love in Action season friends like you contributed over $60,000 to purchase a refrigerated truck and prepare the new East Union Empowerment Center’s Pantry/Warehouse to become the new hub for our innovative economic empowerment programs.
This year we are investing in people – people not only impacted by this pandemic, but the circumstances and barriers of life in poverty.
This is what your support during Love in Action season will do:
These are big goals for 2021 and beyond. Will you help us achieve these goals? The cost of increasing Getting Ahead focus groups from 2 to 6 groups is $40,000 on its own. The amazing thing is that such an investment will return over $200,000 in decreased benefits and contributions to the community in taxes and growth. From a pure investment perspective accomplishing these goals will create a 500% return on investment, but it is so much more to the families and youth who receive your kindness and support.
What can you do?
You can donate, become a volunteer fundraiser and/or RSVP online at LoveInAction.CommonHeart.org.
In spite of everything, together we have risen to the challenges of this present time. Families in this community are counting on our love in action, to bridge the gap and create new hopeful futures.
Thanks for being a big part of this small revolution of kindness!
