Contribution will support Safe Spaces II fundraising campaign.
Franklin Savings Bank recently presented Concord Coalition to End Homeless with a $3,000 donation towards Safe Spaces II – a three-year campaign to raise $2.25 million. Donations to the campaign will enable CCEH to purchase and renovate a building in downtown Concord into four apartments to provide safe homes to people seeking affordable housing, as well as support all of their programs for a three-year period.
“Franklin Savings Bank is pleased to partner with Concord Coalition to End Homelessness to support its mission of ending homelessness in the Capital region,” commented Dawn Beers. VP, Marketing Officer. “As a community bank who is actively involved in supporting affordable housing projects, we share the same vision that every individual should have an affordable, safe place to call home.”
To support the Safe Spaces II campaign, CCEH has developed a Pillars of Support initiative which includes three events to be hosted throughout the year in the greater Concord region. FSB’s donation will support two of the planned events, SouperFest along with a Bluegrass BBQ.
“We are grateful to have Franklin Savings Bank on board as one of our founding Pillars of Support,” said Ellen Groh, Executive Director of Concord Coalition to End Homelessness. “They have been a supportive partner of our SouperFest for many years, so we appreciate their commitment to this important initiative in helping us end homelessness in the Concord Community.”
