Thank you for visiting our fundraising page! I'm running this race to raise money for the Somerville Homeless Coalition. Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.
The Somerville Homeless Coalition is an amazing organization that provides supportive services and affordable housing for the homeless and near homeless. Last year they served almost 2500 individuals--900 of them children. I hope you'll agree that nobody should be without a home, especially children.
Last year I found out just how far donations go to help the Somerville Homeless Coalition:
$25 - Fills 1 grocery bag for a hungry family
$50 - Underwrites one session of case management for support
$100 - Helps pay a utility bill so a family can pay rent
$250 - Provides 5 families with emergency groceries
$500 - Keeps 1 client in supportive services to stay sober and housed
$1,000 - Provides enough financial assistance to keep 1 family from becoming homeless.
Last year, we raised over $5,000 which means we personally kept 5 families from becoming homeless. This year, my goal is to help 6 families from becoming homeless and I need your help to make that happen!
