GiveGuide Campaign Great Success!
Thanks to all of you who contributed to make this year's GiveGuide campaign a rousing success! When the midnight chimes sounded (along with all theneighborhood fireworks) on midnight of New Year's Eve, we had topped all previous years with a grand total of $26,568.
The GiveGuide campaign is a key element in supporting all the programming we offer to our guests. With your help not only will we be able to continue our regular Hospitality Center activities in downtown and SE, but solidify our expansion of services in the health and mental health areas and also increase our geographic outreach.
Thanks again for helping to make this a happy new year for all those we serve!
Though Nightwatch is a single organization, it sometimes feels like we have two faces: there's the Downtown Nightwatch, and there's Nightwatch in SE.
The constituents of each Nightwatch--both guests and volunteers-- may have a vague sense that the other exists, but what exactly the other is like may elude them.
Well, here's good news (at least for the Downtown folks)! We now have a professionally produced video created by Blackstone Edge Studios that shows in less than two minutes what Mobile Hospitality Center is all about. You can access it on YouTube by clicking here.
The MHC goes out every Friday night to serve folks in SE along the Springwater Corridor. If you've been a Downtown volunteer and are intrigued enough by what you see in the video to volunteer a night with the MHC, just let us know.
As for our folks in SE . . .
We'll work on getting something similar put together about what goes on Downtown so you can appreciate what goes on there.
