Thank you to everyone who followed along with our 2023 End of Year Campaign! We launched our $100,000 campaign on Giving Tuesday with the slogan: No matter your past or present, you can help create a better future. To us at Willis Dady, this propels us towards our vision of having a community where everyone has housing, stability, and opportunity. Everyone, regardless of background or current circumstance, can take part in that. We hope you'll join us today, tomorrow, and every day moving forward to fight homelessness in our community.
You, our community, far exceeded our expectations with your contributions. During the entire campaign over $200,000 was raised to empower all experiencing homelessness to build futures of self-sufficiency through advocacy, housing, and employment. We truly could not have done it without you!
Thank you to everyone who donated, shared our campaign, and told your friends. If you want to relive our campaign through the eyes of Scrooge and Gingie, you can read the story here: https://www.willisdady.org/post/unleashing-the-spirit-of-giving-scrooge-s-winter-tale.
Special thank you to everyone who donated goods and time to make Thanksgiving and Christmas at our Emergency Shelter and the Community Overflow Shelter a success. From bringing in presents and dishes to transporting and serving, we couldn't do it without you. Our clients were able to enjoy a home cooked meal served with a smile. They could open a gift thoughtfully purchased and lovingly wrapped. Thank you so much for your support this holiday season!
