Double Your Donation to Paul’s Place – Give by May 31

May 19th, 2016

Hope, serenity, and resiliency: that’s the common thread among the stories our guests shared at our Benefit Breakfasts on April 28 and May 12. Mary’s family was devastated by her rheumatoid arthritis. Emanuel’s life was shattered when his baby and her mother were killed. A $1,500 water bill almost cost Alisa the home she owns. Bailey experienced homelessness for eighteen months. These members of the Southwest Baltimore community and about 400 more each day find the resources and support at Paul’s Place to overcome unimaginable circumstances and move toward self-sufficiency.

A very generous donor was inspired by their strength in the face of challenge to offer a $1 for $1 match for gifts made today through May 31 – up to $10,000. That’s the equivalent of one full day of all of our programs and services plus the infrastructure for operations! Donate today, and your gift will be doubled.

Watch the video that inspired this matching gift! Learn how Paul’s Place saved Alisa’s house and helped Donelle be the first in his family to attend college. Be inspired, then donate.

Your contribution can help Paul’s Place increase resiliency and self-sufficiency of families in Southwest Baltimore. Here are just some of the ways you can help us change lives:

  • $100 can fill 20 bags of food for families in crisis.
  • $250 can help 15 individuals secure the vital documents necessary to apply for housing, insurance, and jobs.
  • $500 can offer Hot Lunch for 225 guests.
  • $1,500 can provide housing stability for 2 families.
  • $2,500 can deliver employment support for 2 job seekers.
  • $3,500 can engage one high school student in a paid summer internship program.
  • $5,000 can enroll 1 elementary school student in our after-school program.

Donate by May 31, and your gift will have twice the impact!
