“We need your participation more than ever, just not in person,” Bragg says. “With COVID-19, we’ve seen an unprecedented surge in unemployment, food insecurity and evictions, which have greatly increased demand for Community Shelter services.
Boots & Bow Ties Chair Anne Deas says, “Think of your savings by staying home! No event tickets, auction purchases or activities to pay for. That can save you $400. Add on no raffle tickets, babysitter or new outfit, and you can save another $200.
Deas adds, “Think of your neighbors experiencing hunger and homelessness.” She asks that event “non-attendees” consider donating the amount they might spend at a typical on-site fundraiser. “You’ll help your neighbors in need and enjoy a night at home.”
All donations are 100 percent tax-deductible AND you can donate on any day you choose, not just Sept. 19, from the comfort of your home . . . or couch!
