Thank you from Downtown Languages
Thank you for participating in this year’s Tips for a Cause virtual Marketplace. Our goal is to raise funds, of course, but also to bring you some fun and engaging experiences. We hope we succeeded!
Your purchases, tips, and contributions all help provide essential learning opportunities and critical services for immigrant families in our community, as well as direct assistance for rent and utilities to those hit hardest by the pandemic. We launched our free Adult Distance Learning Program in April, followed by the Pilas Family Literacy Distance Learning Program in May. Your support makes all of this possible, and we are immensely grateful to each and every one of you.
A virtual Marketplace was the brainchild of our fundraising committee. It was no small feat to make it happen. We extend our gratitude to committee members Ronnell Curry, Brook Edwards, Clare Feighan, Marilyn Kelly, Brice Mercer, and Becky-Jo Samples for a job well done. Special thanks to Brice for creating a beautiful website, Clare for her video and for keeping us on track, Becky-Jo for her social media prowess, and Marilyn for her attention to all the fine details.
