Double your donation to First United!

This winter, one of our long-time supporters, Chris, donated $55,000 to match any donation made until the end of 2018! Chris told us, "I have been so impressed by the work of First – I know this gift will change lives." Don't wait – please give now and seize this special opportunity. 

Whatever the season, our Help Desk is here to meet the needs of community members and to provide sanctuary in the heart of the city for those experiencing homelessness and other hardships. Our clients can:

* have their taxes filed in the spring (or anytime!)

* get hats, bottled water, and sunscreen in the summer

* attend a vaccine clinic in the fall

* come in for a blanket, a hot foot soak, and send a Christmas card in the winter

Your gift could support.....

$50: ID recovery for 2 people

$100: emergency supplies for 1 week

$250: taxes filled for 25 individuals

$500: Christmas cards and phone calls home for 300

We need your help to reach our goal by the end of the year and continue to offer the much-needed services of the Help Desk.

Donate before the end of December, and any amount you give will be doubled by our matching gift donor, Chris, up to $55,000.

Thank you for your gift and for the support you share with us all year long.

Christmas Blessings,

The Rev. Dr. Carmen Lansdowne Executive Director, First United
