WellSpring Resources will participate in Give STL Day on Tuesday, May 5.
Give STL Day is a 24-hour giving event hosted by Greater Saint Louis Community Foundation. The event is intended to help Metro East nonprofit organizations by rallying support from donors. Lura January, WellSpring Resources’ director of development, said this online event could have a positive impact on many struggling Riverbend residents.
“Funds raised from this event will support our Consumer Assistance Fund, also known as the CAF,” January said. “The CAF provides temporary financial assistance to low-income consumers who are facing barriers to recovery. For example, we may grant CAF assistance to a single mom who has to choose between feeding her kids and paying for her medication because she was laid off last month.”
January said providing this type of assistance helps WellSpring Resources’ consumers stay on the path to mental health recovery. The fund is supported by donations and grants.
“Giving is simple and much appreciated,” January said. “Just visit WellSpring Resources’ page on the Give STL Day website on May 5 and pledge your support. The URL is www.givestlday.org//#npo/wellspring-resources.”
WellSpring Resources is one of nearly 800 nonprofit organizations that have signed up to participate in this year’s Give STL Day. For information, contact January at (618) 208-2209 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Information also can be found at www.givestlday.org.
