5 Ways to Support Calvary in February

Calvary Women’s Services has numerous opportunities for you to bring light and hope to women this winter! From donating to our Restoring Hope Campaign to serving warm meals to attending our Hope Gala, continue scrolling to discover five ways you can support women in our programs in February.

Donate to Our Restoring Hope Campaign

Calvary Women’s Services is recuperating from the damages caused by the January 18th gas explosion that occurred next to our Good Hope transitional housing site. Our building suffered substantial water and smoke damage, which will require extensive repairs. This traumatic event also displaced 36 women who called Good Hope home. Women have been safely relocated to alternative housing sites, but we need your support as we rebuild and continue serving our community.

To empower women to achieve their goals during this crisis and beyond, we’ve officially launched the Restoring Hope campaign. With your contribution, we will restore our building, support our programs, and meet women’s needs as they work to rebuild their lives and end their homelessness for good. You can donate to Restore Hope by clicking here.

Become a Partner for Tomorrow

Want to make an impact in the lives of women year-round? Our Partners for Tomorrow program unites a dedicated group of donors who financially support the women at Calvary Women’s Services each month. Generous donors give anywhere from $10 to $500 every month to meet the tangible needs of women at Calvary.

Calvary is working to add 50 new Partners for Tomorrow this winter to ensure women seeking safe, warm housing have everything they need to transform their lives. The support of our Partners for Tomorrow will be even more crucial this month and in the months to come as we work to rebuild our Good Hope program. You can help us reach our goal by giving here.

Save the Date for the Hope Gala

Calvary’s annual Hope Gala is taking place April 25, 2024! Save the date and join Calvary in The Schuyler at the Hamilton Hotel as we celebrate hope, community, growth, and four decades of incredible accomplishments – all made possible thanks to your unwavering support. Learn more and purchase tickets here: calvaryservices.org/events

Make a Gift to the Hope Gala

Looking for more ways to support the Hope Gala? Each year dozens of individual and corporate partners sponsor this event to make it our largest fundraiser of the year. If you or your organization are interested in becoming an event sponsor, please reach out to Lisa Buchs, Director of Institutional Giving, via email (lbuchs@calvaryservices.org) to learn more.

Another way to get involved in this year’s Hope Gala is to donate items or experiences for our silent and live auctions. This part of Calvary’s fundraiser allows attendees to bid on unique meals, tickets to sporting events or concerts, trips to the beach or mountains, signed merchandise from celebrities, and more – with proceeds directly supporting women who are working to end their homelessness for good.

If you have an item or experience that you would like to donate, please contact Emily Kubera, Development Associate, via email (ekubera@calvaryservices.org) today.

Sign Up to be a Meal Volunteer

Calvary needs volunteers to provide warm, nutritious meals to women in our programs in February! These meals are an essential part of our mission to ensure that women can focus on transforming their lives while eating healthy. Our New Foundations and Reach Up program are both in need of one-time meal drop-offs and reoccurring volunteers to provide meals each month.

This is a great activity for your family, friends, coworkers, or congregation! You can sign up to be a meal volunteer by clicking here.
