From the Desk of Cabell Angle:
President of New Eve Maternity Home
Dear Friend of New Eve,
Thank you for your continued prayers for New Eve Maternity Home. Without you, homeless pregnant women would have no place to go in the Northern Shenandoah Valley.
As I write this letter on the Solemnity of St. Joseph, the penitential season of Lent is half over and the coronavirus is literally shutting down our lives as we know it. (Be assured, we are taking extraordinary measures to protect our moms and babies from the virus!).
This situation is very fluid and changes daily.
But there are three things I am sure of:
First, I am sure that God is in charge and we must be faithful and trust in Him during times of uncertainty.
Second, I am sure the needs of the moms and babies living at New Eve Maternity Home will remain steady if not increase in the coming months.
Finally, I am sure that the virus has severely impacted our usual fundraising activities. In fact, we have already cancelled our spring trivia night. In addition, if churches can no longer gather for worship, our baby bottle collections will not take place. The truth is, we have no idea how long some of these restrictions on public gatherings will last. That is why I am turning to you today.
Despite the virus, and the uncertainty it causes,
will you make a sacrificial Lenten gift to New Eve today?
Can you donate AS IF you were at the trivia night enjoying a fun evening with friends? Can you donate AS IF you were participating in the baby bottle campaign?
Make no mistake about it … without the trivia night and the baby bottle campaigns, New Eve will see a significant and immediate drop in donations. How much of a drop? Between $30,000 to $40,000 dollars!
At this point, with face to face opportunities practically non-existent, all we can do is prayerfully ask for your support over the phone or through the mail.
Trusting our good Lord through the powerful
intercession of St. Joseph, I am praying that:
… one angel donor can step forward and make a $5,000 donation … five angel donors can each make a $2,000 donation … and ten donors will donate $1,000 each.
If that happens, we will have raised $25,000 leaving another $10,000 to go. So, I am also praying that MANY donors can step forward and make gifts of $500, $250, $100, $50 or $25.
You are the reason homeless pregnant women in the northern Shenandoah Valley have a safe place to live and care for their babies. Thank you in advance for whatever you can donate today!
We thank you for your prayers and we are praying for you!
Cabell Angle, President – New Eve Maternity Home
PS – Our efforts to purchase a new home are temporarily on hold. In these uncertain financial times, we want to maintain the day-to-day operations of our current home WITHOUT dipping into the funds that are reserved for the purchase of a house. Thank you for your dedication to the moms and babies at New Eve!
