In light of the devastating news and images coming from southern Texas and Louisiana, and the tremendous need of residents there for support and assistance, Frederick Living is reaching out in love to our southern neighbors to assist them in this time of need. Frederick Living will provide a total matching gift of up to $1000 to two organizations greatly involved in serving the people affected by the Hurricane Harvey disaster. These organizations are The Salvation Army and Mennonite Disaster Service. The Salvation Army is actively involved in immediate relief efforts there supplying food, water, shelter and emotional support to vast numbers of victims of this natural disaster. Mennonite Disaster Services has a team there assessing long term needs and making plans for rebuilding efforts to assist long term after the crisis has passed to areas that may be overlooked by larger organizations.
We are inviting residents, staff and other friends of Frederick Living who would like donate funds to aid this effort to make checks payable to Frederick Living and mark in the memo line either Salvation Army-Harvey or Mennonite Disaster Service-Harvey. We will aggregate these gifts and donate them to these organizations, and Frederick Living will match these total funds up to a $1000 total. In order to get help to these folks quickly we are asking that all contributions be received no later than Monday, September 11, 2017.
Please put your check in a sealed envelope and mail to: “Harvey Effort”/Advancement Office, Frederick Living, P.O. Box 498, Frederick, PA 19435-0498. These are charitable donations and will be receipted for income tax purposes to the extent allowable by law. If you have any questions please call Amy Cummings-Leight, Director of Advancement at 610-754-7878, Ext. 250.
