Harrisonburg, VA - Gemeinschaft Home board members serving on the fundraising and public relations committee launched two new fundraising efforts for Gemeinschaft Home this fall. On the morning of October 20, they hosted the first-ever yard sale, created entirely from donated items, with the help of residents, staff, and a crew of JMU student volunteers.
Strite’s made a generous donation of ten dozen donuts that were sold during the event along with hotdogs and drinks to raise additional funds. Part of the day’s activities included a raffle drawing for a beautiful, handmade quilt that was won by Jane Gray. Attendance among local area folks was steady through the morning, and the event was successful overall.
The second event, a week-long drive to raise donations (November 18 – 24), recently concluded, with money raised both online and via mailed contributions. Look for more fundraising events in the near future and other ways that you can provide financial support for the Gemeinschaft Home community.
