YOU made it a Happy New Year!

Greetings wonderful supporters! YOU made it a Happy New Year for more than 2,500 households in the Lakes Area!

It was Monday, December 30. Our staff members were busy on their final day in the office for 2012, serving clients and preparing for all 2013 would bring. Our Fall Campaign to help support our work with families like Steven & Laura’s, Shelly’s, and many others had reached the $56,619 mark by the end of the day. We were just $3,381 shy of our goal and were feeling so fortunate to have such generous supporters. AND, there were still Thrivent Financial Foundation matching funds available, so we were hopeful we would reach our $60,000 goal.

Once again, YOU, our faithful supporters answered the call to action. When we returned to the office this morning to account for the gifts that arrived online & those postmarked by December 31, 2012, the grand total that YOU contributed to our 2012 Fall Campaign was….

Drum roll, please...

Drum roll, please…

$61,410!!!!

THANK YOU for helping us surpass our goal. Your generosity is appreciated by the more than 2,500 households across the Lakes Area who turned to Bridges of Hope during a time of need in 2012.

We look forward to all that 2013 will bring: opportunities & challenges.
