The Institute for Community is proud to celebrate its 25th anniversary during 2020. With the recent challenges for Covid-19, this year has been especially challenging. For three months, we greatly missed all the families and children we serve due to the shelter in place orders. Even now, we are extremely limited in our interaction with the community as we are restricted to groups of less than 10 people and many of our program partners are not in operation. Even so, we continue to serve.
We realize that this year, it seems like our charity golf event is not feasible. Concerns regarding the health and wellness of our donors and staff are considerable. We also realize that some business segments have had significant challenges, while others have weathered the storm with little change thus far. Due to these concerns, we have decided to promote a Shelter In Place Outing, asking all our friends and supporters to donate what they are able. We plan on directing the expenses budgeted for the outing ($50,000) as the initial contribution to the outing, in hopes of hitting our goal of $150,000. We plan on doing an extensive video, which will include all our donors, having fun with a golf theme, which will be shared on all media outlets and with the local news outlets, to hopefully provide some encouragement in the news cycle.
