Veritext for the Emmanuel Dining Room

A fundraiser for Ministry of Caring

$22,485 raised from 56 donors

$10,000 goal

I’m Ellie Corbett Hannum.

I’m fundraising for Ministry of Caring.

If ever there was a year to dig deep, this is the year!  If you have been so fortunate to not have been financially impacted during the pandemic, count your blessings.  I can tell you firsthand that the people that get their meals at Emmanuel Dining Room have been greatly impacted.  It truly breaks my heart to see how much more they are suffering.  Now they have to pick up their meals and eat them on benches under I-95 and anywhere else they can find a seat.  They are out in the elements because we cannot have them in the dining room due to restrictions.

I deeply appreciate your past support and am calling on you again to help raise funds for this very worthy cause.  This is the second year that we are raising funds through Do More 24 Delaware, previously we did it through Delaware Charity Challenge.  I ask you to click on the REMIND ME TO DONATE bar so that as we get closer to March 4, 2021,  you will receive an email reminder to contribute.

I pray for all of you and your families.  "Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver."
