Wellspring Connects! A Virtual Gathering
Monday, May 4th, 2020
On Monday, May 4th, over 210 households ”tuned in” to Wellspring Connects! and together we raised just over $100,000! I hope that you were able to join us. Over 400 views now and counting…
This “virtual event” featured inspiring stories and important content about life as we know it right now. In the landscape of COVID-19, Wellspring is responding to immediate, urgent needs for employment support, lost wages, and families’ inability to ‘make rent’. Yesterday, we were able to see this work in action together and connect with and support our community.
We are so grateful for the generous support of our sponsors, hosts, ticket purchasers and donors. If you made a gift to Wellspring prior to or during the event, thank you! If you would like to make a donation, there’s still time. This event is Wellspring’s single most important fundraising day of the year and we are very close to meeting our goal.
Now as much as ever, Wellspring is the first line of support for more than 500 families on Cape Ann and across the North Shore every year. In these uncertain times, program participants are faced with reduced work hours and lack of childcare. This will have a serious impact on household income. Wellspring continues to provide the essential services of Family Shelter, Homelessness Prevention and Support for families facing financial hardship. Thank you for your support!
