For the past five years, the Spring has represented a time of year when David’s Foundation would normally be in full swing preparing for its annual fundraiser held in June. This Spring, however, has brought experiences and concerns that none of us could ever have imagined. Not only are our families, friends and entire communities facing the unprecedented health crisis of COVID19, too many are struggling with financial challenges and unemployment. It is, sadly, a time of worry and great hardship for some.
It takes no less than four months of work to host that special Summer fundraiser. Yet when the day comes to end, we realize how every minute of that time was so incredibly worthwhile. We also see how truly blessed we are to have the family, friends, and supporters in our lives that we do.
After much thought and consideration regarding the current health crisis, the rising unemployment rates, and the daily life struggles during this pandemic, we have made the decision to cancel David’s Foundation’s fundraiser this year. This decision was not made easily, but we have no doubt it is the right one for this time.
Although we will not gather together this Summer, please know that David’s Foundation remains true to its mission to continue reaching children and families in need. We are only able to do this because of you and your most generous support over the years. Our focus to serve children with terminal and life threatening medical conditions continues; however, because there are so many families with young children struggling on many levels during this pandemic, David’s Foundation will widen its scope to help where we can. If you know of a family in need who you believe David’s Foundation could assist, please contact us. This growth of services to help all children in need is part of the evolution of David’s Foundation.
We sincerely thank you for your kindness, caring, and wonderful support over the years. And, if you are in a position to kindly make a gift this year, we are still most appreciatively accepting contributions to fund our outreach to children. We hope and pray that, with God’s help, 2021 will be a better year for all of us. Take care, stay safe, and be well. We look forward to seeing you at our next fundraiser!
Most Sincerely & With Our Heartfelt Gratitude Always,
