I have an URGENT request. As many of you know, ICM has struggled financially for the last few years. Our donations have declined as with many non-profits.
We NEED your financial support.
We are to the point of having to make drastic changes. We need money to keep the Food Pantry, Bunkhouse, and Thrift Store open. If we don’t receive the needed funds, effective November 1st, 2019, we will be forced to begin the process of closing our Food Pantry. And, following the annual Christmas Party scheduled for December 7th, 2019, we will have to close the Thrift Store.
I can’t tell you how much the thoughts of stopping these programs grieves me. We hosted our annual Back To School Bash on the 1st of August, distributing more than 225 back packs filled with school supplies and as many hygiene packs for kids heading back to school. We have been committed these many years to education and we feel we have made great strides toward helping the people of this mountain community, but without your help, we won’t be able to continue these efforts.
Krystie and Derrick have been a Godsend. I am most especially proud of their work on our After School Programs. Their work with the youth has been outstanding. However, if we don’t see a marked increase in giving, September 13th, we will have to let them go.
This is an urgent request and need. ANYTHING you can do to help would be greatly appreciated.
In His Service,
Barbara and Hilton
