Friends for Families Fundraising Program
During their celebration Saturday, Nov 7th, they kicked off a fundraising program called Friends for Families. We have families with vital issues that need our services, but some families do not have part or all of the extra money to pay for the services.
The Friends for Families Program will provide scholarships for those in need. Imagine the situation where a child is being held back in school because mandated services are not provided and the parents need someone to advocate for them, but they can’t afford to pay.
We are looking for individuals, businesses or organizations that can be a friend to these families by donating to the program. All donations will be used for scholarships and will not go to administration costs. Sign up through our Website on PayPal and have a one-time or monthly amount withdrawn from your account or Credit/Debit card. There is no extra cost to you or us for the PayPal donation process.
You can Donate by
- Coming to the store and dropping off a check or put on credit card,
- Monthly send a check to Friends for Families, 357 Johnstown Road, Chesapeake, VA 23322.
- Online – The Hitching Post Education Center Web home page (https://www.hitchingpost.org) upper right donation button. or
- At this PayPal Link.
The Families will be thankful for your generous giving. Contributions are tax deductble.
