TAKE PART IN THE GLOBAL DAY OF GIVING
Warm Hearts, Warm Homes
YOUR GIFT WILL BE DOUBLED
by the Kennedy-Herterich Family Foundation
Each winter households in our community face heating fuel shortages. Since 2002, WeCAN, (Western Crisis Assistance Network) a community benevolence program of Hospitality House, has been providing help to community members who find themselves having to make decisions between heat and food, warmth and medicine or fuel and rent. Many times, this assistance prevents a household from becoming homeless.
With an average cost this year of $610 for a home heating delivery, nearly double last year's cost, many households are forced to reside in frigid temperatures.
To help offset these challenges, The Kennedy-Herterich Family Foundation has pledged to match all Giving Tuesday donations up to $30,000.
Meeting the goal would PROVIDE 100 gallons of heating fuel to 98 households.
*Last year, WeCAN provided over $115,000 in assistance and 6,100 gallons of heating fuel, assisting a total of 1,649 community members.
