La Casa de Amistad is proud to be a participant in “Give Local Saint Joseph County” on May 9th, 2017. Save the date! We just sent letters and emails to donors and supporters, if you want to join our lists please click HERE.
Give Local SJC is an online day of giving, and the Community Foundation will match the first $10,000 we raise $1.00 to $1.00. After the first $10,000 are raised, the money gathered after will also be matched by a certain percentage; so the sky is the limit!
May 1st – starting on May 1st the website will go live for you to schedule a donation. So you don’t have to worry about forgetting or something coming up on Give Local day.
May 8th – join us and the Music Village at the Brew Werks to kick off Give Local. We will celebrate from 11PM to 1AM. Our Executive Director will be there giving away free appetizer coupons to people who have scheduled a donation or donate once it hits midnight! Be the first one to give a donation for Give Local!
May 9th – Happy Hour at the Brew Werks (5PM to 7PM) to visit with friends and grab a beer with fellow La Casa supporters in Downtown South Bend! We will toast our success with the Music Village and downtown supporters! Hosted by Brew Werks.
In the 2015 for Give Local SJC we raised nearly $40,000. Those funds helped pay for our new La Casa Van that has been a tremendous support for our programs. Our goal this year is $50,000 and we need you to help us grow our programs during this challenging time for immigrants and families on the West side of South Bend.
Please mark your calendars for May 9th, 2015… We will be working to drive online gifts on that day, and if needed can take checks the week before as well. Please contact us if you have any questions. Thank you everyone for your support.
