2020 Annual Appeal – Friends by our Side

The Dwelling Place wishes to acknowledge all those who have contributed to the 2020 Annual Appeal which began in March of 2020 and continues to the present. In the midst of the pandemic and lockdown, you remained faithful and generous helping us raise $27,300 of our $30,000 goal.  Thank you for being friends by the side of our residents, encouraging and empowering them to face their challenges and build a new life.

Your donations carried us through a very challenging time and made it possible for us to serve our residents and Wednesday dinner guests through the heart of the COVID-19 days. Now, as we take a hiatus to regroup and renew, we appreciate your continuing care and support.

We honor all of your efforts with sincere appreciation.
