Seattle Foundation’s GiveBIG, May 2nd

Give bigA Huge THANK YOU to all of our Supporters!
The final numbers have yet to arrive, but The Sophia Way would like to express our deep gratitude for everyone who donated on May 2nd as a part of the Seattle Foundation’s GiveBIG charitable event! We are so grateful for your support of homeless women in our community and are excited about what this means in terms of increasing our services to our clients. 

Overall, the GiveBIG event raised $7.4 million that will benefit organizations and people in our community! $7.4 Million represents a significant number of caring hearts within a 24-hour period! KUDOS to all of you who participated in this wonderful philanthropic event. 

We look forward to your continued support as we continue to grow in our ability to provide more needed services to homeless women in our community. We will be opening Sophia’s Place sometime this summer which will enable us to provide raised beds and private cubicles for our clients…And, opening Sophia’s Shoppe in the Fall which will provide employment training for our clients. All of our accomplishments could not happen without your ongoing support and dedication. THANK YOU.

Mother’s Day Cards are available for a donation of any amount and all proceeds will go towards the clients whom we are honored to serve. Many of The Sophia Way clients are mothers themselves, who through relationship and housing barriers are no longer in contact with their children. Consider yourself fortunate and help provide The Sophia Way clients with support this Mother’s Day!
