BENEFITING: COUNCIL ON DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AND SEXUAL ASSAULT
It’s a Barn Raising!
Leadership Midland’s Class of 2012, Lifeline, is volunteering its time to build a storage barn for Shelterhouse to store the thousands of household items that are donated to Shelterhouse. Shelterhouse distributes these items to survivors to assist them in getting a fresh start.
Lifeline is asking for your help to rebuild lives! Your financial donation will help them make this project possible. With your assistance, Lifeline can purchase necessary building materials and other items that will make the storage building a reality. Please help by donating and spreading the word!
For more information about Lifeline or their barn raising project, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
