Registration for Camp TRS is open now for everyone!
Wow! In the last 72 hours of 2016, we raised $7,200 online as part of our year-end dollar-for-dollar match! When you add in the $4,250 put on the table for the match by five families, it means we raised over $11,500 in those last three days of the year! So far, we have raised $42,000 for our Open Doors Appeal, thanks to your generosity (some year-end gifts are still coming in). That’s so heartening. These gifts help us meet our enormous expenses and allow us to continue to be a welcoming place for all families regardless of income. Thank you!
Your generous gifts totaling $43,000 to our Ohel Yaacov Community Housing Fund in 2016 means we can continue to help our neediest neighbors in 2017 with new grants to local non-profits who serve those in need of shelter. We run our annual appeal from Sukkot to Thanksgiving, though gifts are welcome throughout the year.
If you volunteer with or know of an eligible housing-related organization, please encourage them to apply for funds in the current grant cycle. We want to get these contributions out into the community where they can do the most good. March 8, 2017 is the deadline for applications, so please let us know if you want us to send an application form to a local organization soon.
