Along with the release of our new website, the Helping Tawy staff is kicking things off with our first official Fundraising Goal: Raise for Repairs!
With winter on its way, and news reports calling for a rough one, it is very important that Tawy House be prepared for the chill. As residents of colder areas know, keeping the plumbing system of a building in good, working order is a vital part of this preparation. Tawy House has had a rough go of it lately when it comes to her pipes: boiler repair and a ceiling leak have left us in need of $3000 to pay off the maintenance workers, to remain in good standing with their company in the months ahead. This is on top of the other standard costs for maintaining a reasonably-sized building throughout a cool, Chicago autumn.
HelpingTawy needs to pay this off, and we need to do so by the end of October. It’s a big goal for our first effort, but we believe that we can make it happen through your generosity, and your willingness to reach out to others.
Here’s how to help:
1.) Visit our How to Help page. Make a direct donation there, or use Amazon Smile or iGive as you start looking ahead to winter holiday shopping this month.
2.) Check out our bookstore and pick up that text or journal you have been thinking about purchasing for yourself or a friend!
3.) Consider contributing a gift of service as a way of inspiring other donors to give!
4.) Share this website! Get the word out to those who may not have heard of us before.
At the bottom of our home page, you’ll find a counter which the fundraising team will update periodically so you can track how our Raise for Repairs efforts are going. Let’s make this happen!
