During their office’s holiday party, a donation drive raised $610 for the project and hundreds of books and games for both the Little Free Library and our children and families. The books and games will be used in our classrooms, family rooms used during programming and kept on-hand for families to celebrate milestones such as program graduation, family reunification and securing housing.
When Daugherty was looking to “adopt” a local nonprofit that helps families in poverty (78% of our clients live in poverty), they selected FamilyWise. Through donations and service projects they have taken on everything from our grounds-keeping to business strategy. Last September, we were thrilled to be co-recipients of Charities Review Council‘s first Better Together Award! Thank you, Daugherty, for the incredible impact you’ve made on FamilyWise and the community we serve.
Join us March 10 for our Appreciation Celebration as we honor our Community Partner of the Year, Volunteer of the Year and George Kressin Intern Award recipient!
