Family Promise Update & Ways to Help

October 19, 2021

Family Promise is helping more families facing homelessness in our Metrowest communities than ever before. And, we’re excited to announce that long-time church members and Family Promise Metrowest volunteers Kim and Abby Reohr have joined Diana Carroll as Co-Coordinators for Family Promise at Village Church! Here are a few ways you can help us help families this fall and beyond:

Got Clothes?  Bring Them to the Family Promise FUNDrive!
Thursday, November 11, 202110:00 am- to 4:00 pm or until the truck is full! (Best to come early!)
Family Promise Day Center6 Mulligan St.Natick, MA

Please bring your donations of clean, gently-used, bagged clothing, shoes, accessories, linens, and towels (no other types of items can be accepted) to the Day Center on Thursday, November 11 from 10 am to 4 pm or until the truck is full. It’s best to come early! Volunteers will unload your car. Your items will turn into cash that will not only raise funds to house our families, but also keep the clutter out of your closets and discarded items out of the landfill. It’s a win-win-win!

Keep the Promise Holiday Concert will be on Saturday, December 4 at 7 pm. This was a wonderful event last year, including an inspirational array of vocal artists as well as Family Promise families sharing their stories. It’s a great way to kick off the holiday season with family and friends!

– Family Promise is gathering gift baskets and other specific items to auction off at the time of the concert fundraiser. Here is the link to sign up for items we are seeking for 3 baskets Village Church is donating (Snow Day, Puzzler’s Delight, and Mani/Pedi Party): https://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090b49aeae2ca75-family If you have another idea for a donation, please contact Carole@familypromisemetrowest.org

Any questions? Please get in touch: Diana (diana.carroll4@gmail.com); Kim (reohr@mac.com); Abby (23reohra@wpsraiders.org)

Thank you!
