Thus far in the Me Fine Foundation staff’s quest to set resolutions for the year ahead, we have committed to:
- Communicating about the underlying issues, such as housing and food insecurity, in our communities that create additional burdens for some of the families we serve;
- Identifying and developing partnerships with our peer nonprofit and community-based organizations who also help families navigating medical crisis and pediatric illness; and
- Creating and empowering our donors, volunteers, and supporters to spread Me Fine’s message through all the channels: offline, online, and those in-between.
Our fourth commitment of 2019 is to share more stories of those individuals, families, community groups, and businesses who give their time, talent, and resources to enable Me Fine to carry out its mission.
These generous supporters share our values and want to do whatever they can to provide hope to children and families. Twenty of these individuals compromise our Board of Directors. Dozens more support the organization by hosting thrift drives for new and gently-used items that our Second Hope Shop can sell; organizing and participating in our annual Christmas in July and Hope for the Holidays programs; and finding one-time opportunities to prepare craft supplies, pack items in our storage unit, or help out at one of our events.
Hundreds more — including schools; churches; foundations; small, local businesses; medium-size firms; and major corporations — give of their financial resources. The dollars donated fulfills Me Fine’s promise to children and families. Your contributions equip the organization with the resources to carry out our financial assistance and emotional support programs; to support the professional staff who dedicate their lives to all facets of Me Fine’s work; and to help share the testimonies of what pediatric illness and critical care get told to wider audiences.
Expect to see more of the faces and learn more of the stores behind all those who stand with Me Fine.
