Season of Giving

During the holiday season, HRDC’s donors find so many creative ways to support our work to build a better community.  This is true for individuals as well as business donors.

  • Parents from one local family made a substantial gift to the Warming Center in lieu of giving gifts to their seven adult-aged children this Christmas!  So instead of opening toasters and CDs  they will open a lovingly prepared card announcing a gift made in their name to help 40 homeless people stay out of the cold during this holiday season.
  • One grandmother from California sends a check every year with her Christmas card to the HRDC in loving memory of her grandson.  She always asks us to apply her gift where the need is greatest.
  • MercuryCSC Advertising had a bike-a-thon during the Christmas Stroll.  They raised over $3,000 for the HRDC in one evening!
  • Gifts of merchandise or services are pretty handy, as well!  This week we received a washer and dryer for the Warming Center and a recliner for the family room in the Amos House, one of our transitional homes. And a local laundromat covers the costs of laundering the bedding for the Warming Center for the whole winter season!

Is this community generous – you bet!!! Long story short – We are grateful for contributions of all kinds. To make one today, click here or contact us at giving@thehrdc.org if you need information about what we can utilize.

 

Ho ho ho, Happy Holidays to all!
