Virtual Shrimp Boil to Benefit
St. Francis House Now,
When They Really Need It!
Our Virtual Shrimp Boil Starts Now!
It certainly hasn’t been a normal year for any of us! While we would love to tell you that we’re confident we’re going to be able to have the 16th Annual Shrimp Boil Benefit for St Francis House in October like years past, we don’t know if that’s going to be the case. We can tell you a few things haven’t changed this year. St. Francis House is still here and continues to support the people of central Arkansas who fall through the cracks elsewhere. We know that they will have more needs in the coming months than they’ve had historically. We are beginning a virtual campaign to raise funds beginning this Sunday, July 12 until August 2.
Saint Francis House is seeing a high need for rent and utility assistance, medical and medicine funding, food and clothing needs, as well as crisis assistance and funding for Homeless Veterans. Many clients already were having a hard time making ends meet before the pandemic and loss of jobs. You should expect a letter from Saint Mark's with a stamped return envelope. Please, if you can, donate. We’re going to do everything we can to try to have a safe, fun event this fall, but right now, we’re assuming that we’re not going to be able to have an event which will provide the same level of support we’ve given St Francis House in past years. By making a donation now, you will make a difference in your community. This is one thing that a pandemic doesn’t have to change this year. There are 3 ways to donate:
