Still time to donate to Family Support Council’s non-event
The Family Support Council is retiring its annual Hearts and Flowers Dinner-Dance and Auction after 16 years, and is telling everyone to just stay home.
Watch a family video or read a book with your children.
There is still time to send in a donation to meet the “non-event” deadline of March 31, says council Director Karen Edwards.
“Some 138 individuals have already sent in their donations,” she said. “They can sit back in their pajamas and relax with a good book on that date and know they helped the council.”
Edwards said the agency really does nee th help.
“All the money raised goes to help our parenting, domestic violence-sexual assault and family case management program.”
The March 31 deadline gives staff members a chance to plan for the end of the fiscal year.
The council needs to raise about $30,000 by June 30.
Donations may be sent to the Family Support Council. P,O, Box 810, Minden 89423.
