Welcome to My Personal Page
Thank you for visiting my Personal Fundraising Page.
I am participating in Cycle for Shelter on Sunday, July 23, 2017.
I am raising critically needed funds to support Emmaus programs that help families and individuals who are homeless rebuild their lives. On any given night, more than 350 adults and children call “Emmaus” home. Located in Haverhill, MA, Emmaus programs assist 4,000 different people each year. Emmaus has been recognized in Massachusetts and nationally as a best-practice model for responding to homelessness.
Cycle for Shelter brings together hundreds of riders and volunteers who care deeply about creating solutions to the tragedy of homelessness. I will be included among this group of local heroes who are striving to make homelessness a thing of the past.
Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to make a contribution to my fundraising efforts. Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
Hello to all my family and friends
I am riding the 20 mile ride for Emmaus again because I can remember when I was young how my parents struggled at time to support my brothers and I with place to live, food in our stomachs and clothes ( even if they were hand me downs). I remember a local charity coming to our home with a few bag full for clothes us. I also remember how my Mom would always make christmas special. One year she refermished a small chest and my grandmother and her made doll clothes and I was given a barbie doll. I loved that gift becasue it came from the heart. It didn't matter is was not store bought. So I want to ask you for your support again for a very good cause in helping families/children have a place to live and help adults find jobs to improve their lively hood. You may remeber my husband and I adopted a boy following being foster parents so my life has been busy though full of love. God has blessed me and my family from childhood through. Please take the time to help my ride be even more rewarding with your pledge, every amount helps. Thank You and God be with you all Darlene Cote
