Arise Shelter Update

We are off to a good start in our support of the Arise Women and Children Shelter.  As a result of our Christmas/Holiday Party contributions, we are pleased to announce that J & D raised a total of $714.30 (based on the $5 minimum contribution).
For the Adopt a Family campaign, we had nine people sponsoring families which resulted in those families receiving gifts and a Christmas dinner, which would not have happened without our support.  We raised close to $3,100 for these families.

In January 2010, we will have our first meeting of the Committee for Fundraising for the Shelter, and there are still a few spots left on the committee if you are interested, please let me know.
I know that in the New Year we will make an even bigger difference to the Arise Shelter and positively impact the lives of those that are not so fortunate.  Thank you to all of you that have participated so far.
