San Diego, CA–A $200,000 gift from Martha Weiner Charitable Foundation and other anonymous donors will match donations from Nov. 29 to Dec. 1
Funds raised will support the organization’s comprehensive services that help people leave homelessness behind for good.
On one of the biggest fundraising days of the year, Giving Tuesday, Father Joe’s Villages set its sights on raising $400,000 to help those experiencing homelessness in San Diego. All donations to Father Joe’s Villages given from Nov. 29 through Dec. 1 will be matched dollar for dollar, up to $200,000, thanks to the Martha Weiner Charitable Foundation and other anonymous donors.
During this season of giving, the homeless services provider is working tirelessly to ensure those who are living on San Diego’s streets have what they need to stay safe, healthy and be supported along the way.
In order to provide critical programs and services to people experiencing and overcoming homelessness, Father Joe’s Villages depends on donations and support from the community. Support is critical for Father Joe’s Villages to offer safe and supportive services for neighbors in need. Father Joe’s Villages and its generous donors hope the matching gift challenge will fuel increased generosity in the community. Giving Tuesday donations to Father Joe’s Villages will fund comprehensive services like health care, meals, shelter and more to those who need it most.
“The contribution of our donors is a clear testament that we hold the power to prevent and end homelessness, one life at a time, by supporting our neighbors in need as a united community,” said Deacon Jim Vargas, President and CEO of Father Joe’s Villages. “The journey to overcome homelessness is often not a linear path. Father Joe’s Villages is committed to provide our neighbors with the appropriate tools and resources needed to recover, grow and succeed.”
