PLEASE DONATE

If life’s been good to you, kindly consider helping those who will not enjoy a “new normal” because their daily existences have never reflected the luxury of normal.

Dear Friend,

I hope this letter finds you well. It has been a tough few months for all Americans as COVID-19 is creating a health and economic crises in America and throughout the world.

Slowly, cautiously, we inch our way to some semblance economic stability.

But unlike businesses that can pass on increased costs for its products and services to its customers, shelters and soup kitchens cannot recoup monies spent on health and safety precautions for its staff and those they serve.

Unfortunately, this virus compelled People for the Poor to cancel all its fundraisers for 2020. Gone are the proceeds from these events, roughly $65,000 annually. These proceeds allow us to support South Jersey’s homeless shelters and soup kitchens deliver necessary services, housing and programs.

If in the past you have enjoyed our annual Golf Outings, Designer Bag Bingos and Beef & Beers, please consider donating a portion of what you may have spent to support our cause.

If life’s been good to you, kindly consider helping those who will not enjoy a “new normal” because their daily existences have never reflected the luxury of normal.

It’s too soon to determine the ultimate impact of COVID-19 but your generosity will go a long way today. Every dollar you can give will help someone that has nothing.

100% of all proceeds directly benefit South Jersey’s homeless shelters and soup kitchens.

Thank you.

Anna Wolk, our beloved friend and dedicated People for the Poor board member, passed away on April 3, a victim of the Coronavirus. 
 
Anna was very creative lady with a grounded can-do attitude.  
Her heart was filled with love and caring for her family and friends as well as being a big ole softie for all animals.
 
Always thankful for her blessings she considered it to privilege to donate her time and efforts toward helping those in need.
 
Thank you Anna. You are greatly missed.
