The nights are getting colder, and many hands are busy preparing for the coming shelter season at We Care. We are truly overwhelmed at the outpouring of support from our community, as you so generously step up and offer your time and talents to help those less fortunate at this time of year. Each night during shelter season, up to 49 homeless men receive a warm, safe bed, a hot dinner meal, and access to programs and services that can help them to move out of homelessness. The cost for each man, each night is just $18! In these austere times, we become all the more aware of the value of our dollars— Are you getting the most for your dollars? When you Adopt a Night at the We Care Shelter, your gift provides more than a warm bed and a hot meal. Your $18 can truly be life-saving,. Let your gift give life to the less fortunate this year, ~ a bit of dignity, respect and the hope of a brighter future—Now that’s value!
