Putting the FUN in Fundraising

We’re kicking off spring with lots of fun to shake off the winter blues!  Join us on Saturday, May 19th from 11 am-2 pm for our annual Open House!  We’re having a cookout picnic, so feel free to bring something to throw on the grill or enjoy one of our home-cooked plates (suggested donation $9, but most importantly, everyone eats, as it should be).  Come tye dye your own Love Wins t-shirt, or have one of our talented artists create one for you!  If you would like a copy of the flyer to print for your favorite hang-out spot, click here for a downloadable PDF.

Do you love live music?  Saturday, April 28th at 8pm, Rebekah Todd and the Odyssey are hosting a benefit concert for Love Wins called “Rock Your Socks” at the Pour House here in Raleigh! They will be selling high quality socks made by Farm to Feet, and for every pair sold, they’re donating a pair to Love Wins! To listen to Rebekah Todd’s music, click here!   To purchase concert tickets, click here!

This month, our campaign is “April Showers”, and we’re collecting things that keep people dry.  Bring us your new or used umbrellas, new ponchos and new or gently used towels to help our folks navigate this spring weather.  More than keeping people dry, we’re also trying to help them keep their belongings dry as well.  Bring us your new or gently used tarps and tents to help our folks keep what they have safe and rain/mud free!

We’re enjoying this beautiful weather, and we’re looking forward to posting pictures from our community garden.  If you would like to come visit our garden, help us plant things or just have an extra tomato plant, please stop by and let us show you what we’ve planted!  Gardening is more than the simple act of planting, it’s good for our minds, our bodies, and especially good for our spirits.  We’re excited about all of the fresh vegetables this summer, so stop by and join us!
