Campaign update for Loaves & Fishes new home
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contact: Rev. Jack Gilpin 860 354-5583 www.loavesandfishesofnewmilford.org Loaves and Fishes provides update on Capital Campaign to build their new home “The Danny Straub Community Outreach Center”. Updated figures as of 07/31/2017 The Board of Directors of Loaves and Fishes Hospitality house Inc. has recently voted to formally start a single phase $1.2 million dollar capital campaign to build and furnish their new home on Bridge St. in New Milford. Previous communications had sought to raise $750,000 as a phase one goal with the balance to be raised in a subsequent phase two campaign.
This change is in response to the outpouring of initial support Loaves and Fishes has received from our generous supporters both locally and beyond.
The Board wishes to thank everyone for their generous support. As of 07/31/2017 our capital campaign has received donations totaling $472,175 and has spent $158,178 on project costs including site work and professional fees. There is currently $313,965.68 in funds specifically earmarked for the completion of the project.
The Board is now actively looking to all community organizations and leaders to learn more about this campaign and support it generously. Members of the board are also available to meet with groups or individuals regarding the campaign. To schedule a meeting please call Charlie Meade at 203 775 1434 or Lisa Martin at 203 417 1333.
