Providing hope in the age of COVID-19
Our Campaign for Hope raised more than $1.15 million toward our agency’s response to the COVID-19 crisis! That’s more than double our original fundraising goal!!
Thank you to everyone who contributed to this campaign, which we launched as an alternative to FoodFest this year. The Campaign for Hope ensures that we can continue operating satellite emergency shelters (allowing for social distancing among guests) in the challenging months ahead.
As part of the Campaign for Hope, two anonymous donors from the South Shore offered to match all donations made to FBMS in the month of July, up to $100,000. We’re happy to report that we more than met that target, raising $143,473 toward the Matching Gift Challenge!
Again, THANK YOU to our compassionate community for stepping up and providing hope to our neighbors experiencing homelessness during these unprecedented times.
We still have many challenging months ahead, as we anticipate spending an additional $300,000 per month to protect our neighbors in need. Of that total, $125,000 per month must be raised in private donations. Click here to donate today.
