News from UPAWS
As we enter into June we are exited to announce that through the committed fundraising of our staff, board, and volunteers, we have reached $2,959,535 (79.99 percent) in gifts and pledges toward the Imagine the PAWSibilities Campaign Goal of $3.7 million.
With 6 months left until we enter the new shelter, now is the time we need your help. As we progress toward our 2018 goal of $500,000, we still have $460,000 to raise. How can you help?
But, we need your help. If you have been waiting to see if we would do it- we have. If you have been waiting to see if the community supports us- they do.
If you have been waiting to hear us talk about the new programs we can offer- we are. If you want to see how we can be a stronger member of this community, we will!
Will you be one of the 10 friends? Find out how you can sign up by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling (906) 475-6661. To give now, community members are encouraged to go to upaws.org, stop by the shelter, or send check or pledge to PO Box 968, Marquette, MI 49855 and mark it for the new shelter.
