GUM has you covered for Mother’s Day with a great gift idea that will give you twice the bang for your buck.
Here’s the background: A donor approached us earlier this year with a generous donation and a challenge: Can you make this gift go twice as far? We said: We’d sure like to try! That’s where you and Mother’s Day come in.
During the month of May, you can make a donation of any size to Greensboro Urban Ministry and receive a beautiful tribute card — and your gift will be doubled up to $10,000! The children in our Partnership Village after school tutoring club created the artwork for this project.
That’s right — our goal is to raise $10,000 in May to match the anonymous gift from our generous donor. Can you help us? Every gift is valued and needed to help us meet this ambitious goal.
Your gift will support the 24/7, 365 days a year work of Greensboro Urban Ministry: nightly shelter for men, women and families; daily lunch for anyone who is hungry; case management to help rehouse and stabilize shelter residents; and emergency food and utility assistance.
Starting May 3, you can purchase cards at GUM’s administrative offices, 305 W. Gate City Blvd. You can also order online.
Oh, and since you are making a donation to Greensboro Urban Ministry, your gift is also tax deductible. Honor Mom, double your gift, and receive a tax deduction — kind of makes it a trifecta, doesn’t it?
Please join us for the Mother’s Day Challenge. After all, doing more good is something every mother can love!
