YWCA Evansville Announces $50,000 Matching Donation for Roof Replacement
Replacing the roof now will prevent further damage and allow the YWCA to continue impacting lives in a safe environment. A significant portion of the funds needed to fully replace the roof has already been raised, but there is still work to be done. With the matching gift in place and the generous support from the community, the YWCA is poised to overcome this barrier.
YWCA Evansville is asking for community support to ensure that women and children have safe and clean housing with a new roof over their heads. The sky truly is the limit for YWCA clients and matched donations will go twice as far in helping to Raise the Roof.
For more information about the Raise the Roof campaign, contact Erika Taylor at (812) 422- 1191. View current funds raised on our website at www.ywcaevansville.org.
