It's Because of You
As we move into the new year celebrating our 15th anniversary, we wanted to thank everyone who has shown such incredible generosity to the people of the L9. Because of your outpouring of gifts, we met our match and more! More importantly, because of your partnership, we are positioned to kick off the Whole 9 initiative this month, partnering with each L9 resident right where they need it. It's people like you we depend on,
and we couldn't do it without you!
YOU are the final piece to this puzzle!
To launch the Whole 9 Initiative, you donated $23,109.48.
Because you partnered with us in our End of the Year Campaign, we thought you might like to see all of the pieces that came together to make it such a HUGE success:
33 people individually donated $8214
29 of these people we have come to count on for their support, while
4 people joined us as new members of this incredible family
3 individuals joined the Krewe of House the 9 as sustaining donors, donating and pledging
23 existing members of the Krewe of House the 9 made their monthly donations of $1194.52
$2454.60 was raised in company matches
$5,000 was given by by our incredible partners Tony and Tony to match your phenomenal
outpouring of generosity
Your gifts will enable us to serve the WHOLE of the residents of the L9, partnering Ms. Vanessa to resources so her yard doesn't flood any more, enabling Ms. Cynthia and Ms. Galethea to reach out to our neighbors to ensure their voices are heard, and providing resources for Mr. Banks to continuing serving his community with the nutritious meals they need.
So, though it doesn't quite seem like enough: THANK YOU!
With all good wishes for a new year filled with peace and joy,
Sarah, Gaynell, MA and everyone at the L9WHA
P.S. If you are one of the 37 people who donated, you can increase your gift even further with an employer match.
