A gift, and a challenge for Warming Shelter

Here at Immanuel Episcopal Church in Bellows Falls, we watched with concern this past winter when the Great Falls Warming Shelter was denied its permit to operate and could not serve the area's homeless.

We have donated to the Greater Falls United Network (GFUN) through Southeastern Vermont Community Action (SEVCA) to support the Warming Shelter each year and have been represented by one of our deacons, Rev. Charles Mansfield, at the planning meetings.

We pledge $6,000 as seed money to ensure there will be a shelter in Bellows Falls. This seed money would be given on the condition that other churches and organizations match it to create a fund for a permanent home for the warming shelter.

We hope this pledge will bring the community together around the cause of the Great Falls Warming Shelter.
