Carpenter’s Shelter enjoyed connecting with our donors at our annual Thank-a-Thon on Thursday, March 6. Members of our staff, as well as volunteers Megan and Collin, picked up the phone to call and thank everyone who donated to the shelter over the past year.

Many of our donors were surprised to receive a personal thank you with no strings attached. We work hard to achieve our mission every day, and still believe it’s important to take the time to individually thank everyone.

Regardless of amount donated, $5 or $1,000, we know everyone deserves a thank you.

For about two hours calls were being made. You do the math; that’s a lot of donors. We are fortunate to have great supporters which allow us to be more independent as an organization and serve the community more effectively. Only 20 percent of our funding comes from the government, the rest comes from caring donors like you.

If you are passionate about helping end homelessness in Alexandria consider making a donation here. Every little bit helps our clients achieve independence and more stable futures.
