Gypsy Hill Place welcomes Valley Mission for a fundraiser to benefit the agency's care and ministry of the homeless. The ceilidh theme fundraiser is at 6:30 p.m. March 12 in the Wintergarden Room.
A ceilidh is an Irish or Scottish gathering or party during which music, poetry and story-telling are offered for entertainment.
"We are hoping lots of people will be interested in an Irish-themed event," says Emilie Mehrtens, office manager and volunteer coordinator at Valley Mission.
Join us in our ‘Honor and Love’ Fundraiser
We are proud to host an opportunity for you to permanently honor a loved one in your life, either living or deceased; celebrate the ministry of a church or civic group; or recognize a true role model in our community through the ‘Honor and Love’ brick fundraiser! Beginning now, you can purchase an engraved brick with your loved one’s or group’s name and a space in our on-site Chapel in which to permanently place it. Your effort will be a lasting tribute and will bless the ministry of the Valley Mission, which offers shelter, support, and hope to those within our local community.
Take advantage of this limited-time offer to honor in a significant way those you love and remember! Engraved bricks can be purchased at the cost of $125.00 each. Please complete the necessary form and mail your payment with completed form to our Main Office at 1513 West Beverley Street, Staunton, VA, 24401. Please feel free to call us with any questions. Completed bricks should be available approximately 6-12 weeks after your order. The Valley Mission will dedicate and bless the new wall of bricks in our Chapel during a service to be held later this year. Details of the date and time will be forthcoming in a correspondence to each person who places an order. Help support the Valley Mission while expressing your love for family and friends!
OUR CURRENT RESIDENT NUMBERS ARE:
79 people staying in the shelter this week, including 33 single men, 13 single women, and 33 family members (comprised of 22 children and 11 mothers).
We need your financial support to provide the homeless safe shelter and to feed our local community who cannot afford to feed themselves.
