What is Family Promise Week?
Over the past eight years, Family Promise affiliates across the country have set aside a week in October to celebrate the work we all do every day – preventing families from becoming homeless, sheltering those in crisis, and stabilizing families so they are no longer at risk. This national event increases awareness of the issue of family homelessness and is an opportunity to engage and thank volunteers, donors, supporters, and community leaders.
This year Family Promise Week takes place on October 18th through 25th. During this week, affiliates will be doing all different activities to fundraise and raise awareness for our mission. This year, Family Promise of Southern Ocean County will be posting on social media, launching a local awareness campaign, and fundraising on FPGives.org.
There are also prizes offered by Family Promise national to affiliates who achieve certain goals! This includes most likes on social media, first to $500 raised, and most new donors! Keep an eye out on our Facebook and Instagram pages for posts, and our GiveGab page here!
