Spring Match: In March and April your gifts are doubled to Christian HELP

0
From Christian HELP

3 philanthropists are leveraging their giving to help PREVENT homelessness! Together they have provided $30,000 to match all donations to Christian HELP during the months of March and April.

Why?
  • Over 40% of families in Central Florida are classified as “working poor”.
  • The “working poor” are one crisis away from homelessness.
  • In Central Florida, 1 in 6 people are food insecure.
  • Thousands are already homeless in Central Florida.
  • Poverty and homelessness impacts education, health care, crime rates, the economy and more.
A tribute to each philanthropist:

 

 

Caren Gout (1946-2018)
A longtime supporter of Christian HELP lived her life giving to others. Caren was a member of the task force that came together 25 years ago to form CFEC (Central Florida Employment Council) which is a division of Christian HELP. Together, these entities now help over 7,000 people a year find jobs and boast over 900 HR members.  Caren’s legacy continues as her bequest gift is offered as part of the Spring Match!

Page One Consultants – Sheryl Page
