We want to thank you for your past support of our annual Walk of Hope. For 40 years, the Walk gave us an opportunity to share our belief that all people are called to be part of the life of our society and our Church.
This has been a year of change for Disability Services and Ministries and we are looking to change our fundraising efforts as well.
We wanted to let you know that we are canceling the Walk of Hope this year. However, we will be participating in the 3rd year of #weGiveCatholic on Giving Tuesday, which is November 27, 2018.
We realize that for many of you the Walk has been a very important part of showing your support to Catholic Charities Disability Services and Ministries, but also to the children and adults who participate in our many programs. It has been a very important part of our history as well. The Walk had become a “friend”raiser and we looked forward to gathering each October and celebrating together. This was a difficult decision, but we are looking forward to making our future fundraisers just as exciting!
We Give Catholic is a one-day online fundraising campaign organized by our Catholic Community Foundation. You will have the opportunity to continue supporting our programs for persons with disabilities by making online donations on November 27. The funds raised from #weGiveCatholic will come back to our programs for persons with disabilities, just as the funds raised from the Walk did.
If you are unable to make an online donation on November 27, but would like to still support our programs, please consider sending us your check, made payable to “Disability Services” and mailing it to 7911 Detroit Ave., Cleveland, OH 44102.
As we get closer to November 27, we will be in touch to let you know about the various raffle drawings for those who pledge their support. You can also keep an eye on our website and Facebook Or you can call 216-334-2962 or email for more information.
Thank you for your dedication to persons with disabilities and we hope that you will continue to support our very important programs and ministries.
God Bless You,
Director, Disability Services
