Women’s Center Receives Challenge for Transformational Gift

Women’s Center Receives Challenge for Transformational Gift

The Women’s Center, Inc. announced today a matching gift opportunity that would eliminate the mortgage on the only domestic violence shelter in our area.   Lucy Grove, the organization’s president, said, “Harbor House will be completely paid for when we complete a matching gift offered to us by generous donors who hold the Women’s Center dear to their heart.”

The donors, Rod and Holly Aldrich, will match all gifts in 2018 that are directed to pay off the $507,000 mortgage.  Any pledge of $20,000 or more can be paid in two or more installments though 2019, Grove added.

“Paying off Harbor House will greatly improve our ability to help women, men and children in crisis well into the future,” said Grove.
