CWRM has met and exceeded their May Matching Challenge goal of $50,000, with the help of their friends and donors. These contributions will be matched with an additional $50,000 by the Zimmerman Family Foundation and the Martin Family Foundation for a total of over $100,000 in support of the Mission’s programs and services.
The funding is critically important as the Mission prepares for the summer months. During June, July and August the Mission will provide over 6,000 nights of shelter and nearly 9,500 wholesome meals for homeless men, women and families. They’ll distribute cool clothing and open their facilities to welcome in people who otherwise would have no escape from the heat. And they’ll continue their long-term recovery programs to help the homeless rebuild their lives.
The Mission thanks the foundations that offered the initial funding as well as the hundreds of Mission donors who contributed in May to ensure the Mission would reach their goal and receive the matching contribution!
