Nobody Can Add but Everyone Cares!
The January 2020 Urgent Funding Appeal
At this time, $19,300 has been donated by our citizens to “MATCH” a past resident’s $13,000.
The sub-story is the community's affirmation of his actions. Usually, homeless young men have been rejected in one way or another by their family, community or society as a whole, causing tremendous self-doubt.
Our mission is to help our guys "find the pride in themselves and the confidence in their future necessary to seize the rewards of a productive life which contributes to our community".
It took a great deal of confidence in his future to take this large amount of money from his savings and contribute to WRYM. He can now feel confident that what he was doing was "the right thing to do". Donations of well over $19,000 to "match" his $13,000 says our community was impressed and will do much to affirm the "pride" he may now feel.
Sleeping Rough is not camping out. It’s surviving the night!
