Many of you have been asking: yes, it's time for our annual Help the Homeless Campaign! Thanks to incentive grants from program host Fannie Mae, we can stretch your event registration or check donation dollars for an even bigger impact to help local families avoid homelessness and get on the path to financial stability.
Now is your unique opportunity to change lives for the better! We'll have details at our website soon.
Click here to download and share our Help the Homeless flyer (pdf). Here's how you can help:
Participate in a Walk, Activity or Special Event. Have fun raising awareness and funds to support our neighbors in need. Event registration is $20 for youth to age 25, $30 for adults. There will be many fun public events to choose from, including neighborhoods, schools and community events -- all posted via our website soon.
Sleep In to Help Out! Want to participate but no time with busy schedules? Register online by Nov. 2 for our UCM Sleep In To Help Out "virtual event" -- easy and hassle-free! Click here for details and to register now.
Host a Walk or Special Event. It's easy to incorporate a UCM Help the Homeless component into your ongoing or new event at your school, neighborhood, sports, social, business or other group activity -- and ask your friends and colleagues to help prevent homelessness. All events must be registered online by Oct. 18 and take place by Nov. 3. We'll have details online soon at our website, or email Diane Hill now to get started.
Write a Check to Support UCM. If you prefer, make out your check to "Help the Homeless/CFNCR" and mail it to UCM by Nov. 15. Your check will help UCM qualify for Fannie Mae's 15% sponsor match. Your $100 gift will become $115 to directly benefit UCM.
No matter how you help, your registration fee or check donation is 100% tax deductible. And 100% of your credit card registration or check directly benefits UCM families in need.
Our UCM website will be live soon with our Help the Homeless Campaign Headquarters pages with the flyer and full information and links.
