Giving Hearts Day 2016
Think about this for a minute. What would you be giving up if you did not have an address, a home? How would your life be different if you could not enjoy a warm meal with your family after a long day, or if you did not have enough food to feed your family? We do not want anyone to have to think about this much less experience it. We need your help though!
Join with others in supporting the Fargo-Moorhead Dorothy Day House of Hospitality (FMDDHH) this Thursday, February 11th. Contribute $10 or more online at impactgiveback.org, and your gift will be matched by Dakota Medical Foundation and other local supporters. Your gift will go to work immediately; specifically, gifts from Giving Hearts Day 2015 allowed us to:
- Help 28 men get into housing
- Provide 3,641 shower, laundry, and other support services to 530 men, women, children who are homeless (a 670% increase since 2010).
- Distribute an astounding 1,013,831 pounds of food to 19,844 families in our community.
Pope Francis visited the United States in 2015 and reminded us that we are a “human family” and have a personal and social responsibility to take care of our great nation and its citizens—each other, especially the most vulnerable. He went on to sight Dorothy Day as a leader in addressing injustice and poverty.
Here at FMDDHH, we are committed to providing a space, where all of our brothers and sisters are loved and accepted, welcome at our facilities, and given food, clothing, and shelter. We pride ourselves on building relationships with the people we serve, listening to their stories of pain, courage, and triumph, to better understand their needs. We strive to work in cooperation with other service providers to get people connected to resources that will help them achieve self-sufficiency. We aspire to carry on Dorothy Day’s legacy and belief that everyone has worth and deserves to have their basic needs met.
This is a one-day only opportunity to expand the impact of your gift! On February 11th, support us at impactgiveback.org. Thank you for your continued support of our mission to shelter, nourish, and empower people who are homeless and hungry!
