Northampton Shelter Sunday: Oct 01

An update from Shelter Sunday Northampton:

This year, October 1st will mark Northampton’s 32nd annual Shelter Sunday—an effort which began in Pulaski park with the initial goal to inspire every household in the Northampton area to contribute at least $1 to support essential service in the community. Today, Shelter Sunday is still raising crucial funds for three local agencies serving people who are serving those experiencing housing and food insecurity in Northampton and Easthampton: Friends of the Hampshire County Homeless Individuals, Manna Community Kitchen, and CSO (Clinical & Support Options) ­­­

When we began Shelter Sunday, we went door to door. We also had collection sites at various businesses. And from the start, we have relied on the generous support of our sponsors, community members, and local businesses. In previous years, the focus of this day was a handful of volunteers walking around their neighborhoods and knocking on doors. This year you’ll receive a mailing instead of a visit. We invite you to send in your contribution or use the convenient online donation platform. Your participation will help us reach our goal of $100,000.
