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.

Thank you.

Dear Friends,
We sincerely hope this finds you in good health and good spirits.
It’s an understatement to say we’ve missed seeing you at our annual fundraisers, all of which were canceled due to COVID.
In a year when everything changed, People for the Poor remains dedicated to help those in need. To that end we are asking, if possible, for an end-of-year donation to provide assistance to those who struggle daily.
As you know, we rely solely on donations from our sponsors and supporters, and this year we were unable to give those proceeds to our many South Jersey homeless shelters and soup kitchens. And the numbers of those in need are growing as many have lost their jobs and face eventual home eviction.
To those who have already donated we sincerely, truly, thank you for your support. And for those who wish to contribute an end-of-year donation, kindly CLICK HERE TO DONATE for an online donation, or mail your donation to:
People for the Poor
PO Box 821

Bellmawr, NJ 08099

May the New Year be a brighter one. We will keep you apprised of our 2021 fundraisers and hope to see you all again.
We miss you!
