I had the opportunity, recently, to meet a person who has been sending monthly donations since we started fundraising for STWS in January 2016. I thanked her for her continued support and belief in our work. I learned she had no prior connection to Project Home, or any of our staff or board members -- she was just an individual, who saw a news story about our new initiative to help local veterans that decided to take action. She liked that Project Home was a local nonprofit and that our program makes long-term investments in people and communities.
I told her that every time we receive a donation from her, I am extremely grateful, inspired and energized to continue my search for more area supporters and partners for STWS! It's not always easy to drum up support for an initiative (no matter how noble the cause or how long your nonprofit has been serving the community). Some days you wonder when you'll find that next person, or organization, who will believe in what you're doing, so much so that they'll donate, tell others about your initiative and join in your efforts to build a resource that previously wasn't there.
Project Home has had a great start for STWS -- we've helped 20 veterans and their families with over $250,000 worth of home repairs, improvements and modifications. We received a big boost with a $100,000 grant from The Home Depot Foundation during our first year, but local support is what launched STWS and growing that local support is the key to sustaining this program. We want to make sure Serving Those Who Served is something struggling veterans in our area can turn to and count on.
Will you help us?
