Nearly $18,000 Raised at Shoreline Area "Sleep-Out".

Thanks to everyone who helped make the Women Helping Women - Shoreline Sleep-Out such a huge success! Our total to date (and money is STILL coming in!) is: $17,616!!! (This includes the matching gifts). Our goal was to match the original pledge of $4,000. We did that, and when the second matching gift was pledged. the group assumed that would simply be an add-on. However, the reality is that we matched, dollar for dollar, both matching gifts, and then some! The dollars raised will go to help purchase the lumber needed to start the framing on the Jacob’s Well project and bring more housing and support services to homeless moms and kids. We hope to start framing right after the waterline is installed (permits in process) and the weather permits.
