Event Honorees: Don and Kaye Kole
AN ATTIDUE OF GRATITUDE
Thank you to everyone that made Union Mission’s 4th annual fundraiser, Raising Hope, a huge success. Together we raised over $250,000 to help support homeless individuals here in our local community. The event gave Union Mission the opportunity to recognize two long-time community advocates, Don and Kaye Kole. We also heard from former Mayor of Albuquerque, NM, Richard Berry, who praised UMI for their cutting edge efforts to improve the current state of homelessness in Savannah and encouraged the 400 philanthropy-minded community members in attendance to continue helping those most in need.
We are grateful for our passionate and committed donors, volunteers and supporters. They play an integral role in ensuring that UMI can continue to provide emergency shelter, clinical mental health counseling, permanent supportive housing, HIV/AIDS services, and culinary arts training to local community members in need.
