Why The Place?
What's Your Why?
Everyday we are bombarded with ads, phone calls, emails, text messages, and social media posts all vying for our attention. With so much going on around us it is vital for our own well being that we are able to zero in on what is important. To zero in on what is essential. To zero in on what is good. And in the flurry of it all it is healthy to step back and ask "Why?"
"Why should I pay attention to this ad?" | "Why should I care about that post?" | "Why should I devote my time to this activity?"
As we enter the last weeks of this year many of you will begin to ask yourselves:
"Why should I give to nonprofits?" | "Why should I give to that nonprofit?" | "Why should I give to that cause, or that mission, or that charity event?"
At The Place, we hope that your self-reflection will include, "Why The Place?"
"Why should I support The Place?" | "Why should I give my time to The Place?" | "Why should I encourage my friends, neighbors, and families to engage with The Place?"
Everyday at The Place we see reasons to answer your, "Why The Place?". On any given day, if asked, "Why The Place?" one could say:
"To prevent that family from eviction." | "To keep the lights on for that little girl doing her homework." | "To give companionship and connection to the lonely senior.
"To fuel that little boy's daily adventures with nutritious food." | "To reassure the single grandmother raising her kids that it will be okay." | "To give the family who has just faced a life altering situation hope."
"To give the teen boy the ability to see his potential." | "To give the 18 year old girl without a family and without a home, a safe place to come to at the end of her day.
So, what is your answer to, "Why The Place?"
We hope that you'll give to show your "Why" and that you'll tell us your, "Why".
We know what 2020 has brought us, but what is to come in 2021 we haven't a clue. With your support, with your care, and with your trust, we'll not only continue to give you a reason to support our work, but for the families who depend on our programs and services, we'll be able to give them hope, encouragement, love, and empowerment.
