Covid-19 may have diminished our spirit, but not our need…..
We, at Responders Retreat are hoping that all of you are faring well through the Covid-19 health crisis, at least as well as can be expected. It has affected us all in many ways whether it was home schooling our children, working from home, re-setting our budgets through creative financing, or feeling the isolation and missing our social lives. For those of you on the front lines confronting Covid-19 every workday we applaud your dedication and selflessness to take care of us all. For those who have lost someone to this disease we send our sympathies.
Responders Retreat mission is to provide respite and relief to all first responders (including nurses) suffering with the symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder incurred in the line of duty. The mental health of all of these professionals has been taxed even more since Covid-19 came to be.
Since many parts of the country are just opening up and so many summer and fall events cancelled until next year, we are limited on fundraising opportunities, so we are reaching out to you for assistance. We are trying to find at least 150 individuals or companies willing to donate $10.00 per month for 1 year. An automatic deduction through Paypal is an option. It can be more or less, but it really would help us out. (I have a lovely young woman who donates $1 per month because that is what she can afford.) We realize that some of you who believe in our cause may be struggling right now and we want you to take care of your families first. But if there are others who could make a monthly pledge to help us provide services to the brave men and women who are there for all of us every hour of everyday, we would be ever so grateful.
