Urban Ministries must raise $300,000 this fall to continue helping your neighbors in need. 94 cents of every donated dollar goes straight to our mission. We’ve got some stories to tell – joyful stories. Because of you, our neighbors are healthier, better nourished, and moved from homelessness to home. You’ve helped turn desperation into celebration. I’m writing to say thanks, and to ask for your help again.
Annual appeals usually open with a tear-jerker. I don’t think it takes a tear to open a heart. It takes confidence: confidence that your giving makes a difference.
OUR FALL GOAL: $300,000 TO SUSTAIN VITAL PROGRAMS!
Urban Ministries of Wake County has had a good year working hard to do more with less. The sick received healthcare and got healthier through our Open Door Clinic. The hungry were fed healthier meals through our Food Pantry. Homeless women began their journeys home with support from the Helen Wright Center.
YOUR NEW OR INCREASED DONATIONS WILL BE MATCHED THIS FALL!
Together, we do renew lives and we do restore hope, for recipients and donors alike. Our lives are changed as our clients’ lives change. Thanks to the remarkable generosity of the Stewards Fund, your new or increased gift will have an even greater return on investment this year.
VISIT URBANMIN.ORG TO GIVE ONLINE.
Our clients are served by 1,400 volunteers who clearly know the return in their investments. They offer a warm welcome to people who may never before have asked for help, provide hospitality without pride, serve nutritious food to fill empty stomachs, take histories, do exams, interpret tests, prescribe treatment, fill prescriptions, and support women in their walk toward independence and home.
THE RESULT: the sick get well, the hungry are well fed, and the homeless find a home. But only with your continued help. Thank you.
