Columbus Township Fire & Rescue Coat Drive

Columbus Township Fire & Rescue, in partnership with Bartholomew County American Red Cross, is holding a Coat Drive from Oct 13 thru Nov 14.  We are specifically looking to collect winter wear for all kids, infants thru high schoolers, but we will accept all donations.  In addition to coats, we are collecting gloves, hats, and scarves as well.

All donations can be dropped off at Columbus Township Fire Station 221 at 935 Repp Dr (near intersection of State and Marr).  A collection bin will be clearly marked, and donations can be dropped off 24/7.  Monetary donations are also welcome, and can be dropped off at the same location from 8am-5pm on weekdays.
Donations from this coat drive will be distributed to families in need in Bartholomew County.  Help us keep everyone safe and warm this winter!

Community Center of Hope’s Endowment Fundraiser

The Community Center of Hope, Inc., (CCH), a 501(c)3 non-profit of Hope, Indiana, has been selected as one of two non-profit recipients to receive a matching endowment for 2014 from Heritage Fund, The Community Foundation of Bartholomew County. In order to receive this matching endowment from the Heritage Fund, CCH must raise $10,000 that will contribute to this fund.

 

Community Center of Hope's Endowment Fundraiser
What is an endowment?
An endowment is an investment whose capital cannot be withdrawn, but the interest earned each year can be used by the Community Center of Hope, Inc. for the center’s needs, such as:

scholarships for low-income families in need of child care
supporting operating costs of the Hope Food Bank which is housed on the center’s property
providing support for capital projects that would benefit the community and CCH’s clients

How can you help?
First and foremost, any donation you make to this fund will be appreciated, big or small! Simply pledge the amount you wish to donate and enter your credit card information in Tilt.com’s secure payment center. Once our campaign has reached the “tilt” threshold of $8,000, payments will be processed and you will receive a receipt for to tax-deductible donation.
(If you would like to make a donation by cash or check, please see the “Want to make a donation in person?” section below.)

Second, spread the word! Tell your family, friends, co-workers, clubs, organizations, church congregation, anyone and everyone about out fundraiser. Send out emails, post on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, whatever social media site you use! Send it across the country- anyone can donate!! Simply direct others to this site, where they can make a secure online donation, and ask them to help spread the word, too.

The Deadline
Our Tilt campaign must reach the “tilt” threshold of $8,000 before the campaign ends on November 25, 2014 at 10:00 a.m. before any money is collected. If we do not meet out “tilt’ threshold, no payments will be processed, so as you can see, every donation is important!
Don’t forget, your donation, once processed, is tax-deductible!

Are you a business owner?
Consider hosting a mini-fundraiser for us, with the money contributing to our online endowment Tilt campaign! Example: Pledge a $1 for a specific food item sold over the course of a weekend, host a silent auction or raffle, or share our information on your website. If you’d like some ideas for a mini-fundraiser, contact Chelsea Kendall, CCH Executive Director at (812) 546-4499, or Joanna Tucker, CCH Board of Directors President at joanna@treasuredrelicsphotography.com. We would both love to share ideas with you! And again, your business donation is tax-deductible!

That’s okay! In addition to our online Tilt campaign, donations by cash or check can also be made directly to the Community Center of Hope, Inc. or to Heritage Fund, just be sure to identify that the donation is for the endowment. These donations will be added to our Tilt totals to help us reach our goal.
