Giving Tuesday is TODAY and the USS Fort Worth Support Committee is working to raise $10,000. We have $2,290 as of 4:30 pm, so help us drive that number up! The work the Support Committee does recognizes and honors the work of the sailors on the USS Fort Worth while boosting their morale.
In the past year, we have sent 4 care packages to crew members and honored top level sailors of the quarter and sailors of the year. We have also supported 8 sailors to visit Fort Worth to learn about our city and feel the love and support our citizens have for the work they are doing.
Raising $10,000 lets us expand our mission to the sailors. With $10,000 more in our budget, we can send a care package a month instead of once a quarter. We can recognize and honor 15 sailors with cowboy hats from Peters Brothers and we can invite even more sailors to visit and learn about Fort Worth.
We need your support TODAY! We have raised $2,140, and our goal is $10,000! Please DONATE TODAY!
We have over 75 members of the support committee. If each member contributed $100 we would easily reach $7500 in the first hour of the campaign.
Around 300 people receive our weekly E-news. If each of you gave $50, we would raise $15,000 But $50 may be too much for you. So think about giving $20 which covers the cost of mailing a care package box to the ship.
And if $20 isn’t in your budget, share this post with friends and family. Let’s be honest, we need you to share this post anyway so you can help spread the word that Giving Tuesday is coming!
We had a great weekend of celebrating the USS Fort Worth’s 4th Anniversary! Check out pictures from the October 3 dinner below.
