Starting today (Wednesday) through May 5 (Thursday) Home Again St. Johns is taking part of the community driven fundraising event to help aid our efforts in building a service center & comfort station. Here is a press release from our Executive Director, Ellen Walden:
Home Again was relocated in October 2021 to make way for a Workforce Housing Initiative on the site where we were planning housing for the homeless. This year we are struggling to meet our needs at the new location. However, the County did approve a $2,282,000.00 grant for us to purchase and build a new service center/comfort station and some housing units for our homeless in the next 18 months. Until then we need your help!
Our current location has presented some additional financial burden for the organization as we have gone from $1.00 annually to approximately $5,000.00 monthly to lease at the new location. This is significant for an organization to absorb.
We have in past years participated in the St Augustine Giving Day! This year is no exception. We are asking for you to support our fundraising efforts! Giving Day takes place from 12 noon on May 4th to 11:59 am on May 5th. We also have a great opportunity to win additional funds by strategically placing your donation on that day!
Giving Day is a 24-hour online event that supports local nonprofits. Your donations can help us win up to $25,000 additional funding!
$5000 for raising the most money
$2500 for the most unique donors
$750 each for the first and last donations
$500 for the donor from the furthest distance from St Augustine
and many more prize categories!
Help us win by donating and getting others to donate as well!
Help us, help others by donating during this event! Any donation is helpful!
Thank you for continuing your support for Home Again!Ellen S Walden, Executive Director
