30 Friends to Celebrate 30 Years!
Hello my crafty friends! I hope you all doing well, staying safe, and healthy. Still enjoying life as best one can at this moment. This is an unusual post as this is a request for help/support.
As many of you know, I sit on the board for Prince George’s Child Resource Center, a non-profit in Prince George’s County. The Center is a wonderful place dedicated to supporting vulnerable families and working to assure children grow up in homes free of abuse and neglect. We believe by supporting families and educating caregivers, healthy and nurturing environments in which children can grow and learn can be created.
The Center serves more than 1,500 families every year through child development education, adult education classes, specialized training for caregivers, home visits, connecting families with support resources, and other service programs including a diaper bank and car seat program. And the organization has been able to pivot and offer services virtually since March. Since they opened their doors 30 years ago, they have worked with nearly half a million Prince George’s County families in need.
We are celebrating 30 years this year. Grand plans have gone awry for celebrating and fundraising. We’ve had to cancel all of it. Normally, you amazing scrapping ladies would have participated in a Basket Raffle at the Harbor Scrapbooking Crop where you all have so generously given between $1600 – $2000! We’ve always been able to donate it on Giving Tuesday where another donor has matched our donation, making it $3200 to $4000! Here are some pictures of the community we serve:
I’m reaching to see if you can help by donating $30.00. Of course, you are welcome to give more or less. We are asking for $30 because it is the 30th anniversary of the organization. As a board member, my goal is to find 30 people willing to give this small amount.Here is the link to my Champion Page: https://e.givesmart.com/events/jff/c/:abeWJwY3WtN.
Thank you in advance for your kindness in helping us to serve our community.
