Thank you for helping us meet the Mother’s Day Challenge! This special online challenge event raised $11,601, more than doubling our anonymous donor’s original gift.
You remember the story: 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!
During the month of May, GUM received 78 donations specifically for this challenge. Donors received a beautiful tribute card — and their gifts were doubled up to $10,000! The children in our Partnership Village after school tutoring club created the artwork for this project.
Gifts 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.
