Support from Give to the Max Day Helps People Serving People Bring Stability to Families in Crisis

People Serving People, the region’s largest emergency shelter for families experiencing homelessness announced today its affiliation with the 10th Annual Give to the Max Day slated for Thursday, November 15. Last year, People Serving People received $59,000 in donations and matching gifts as a part of Give to the Max Day.

Give to the Max Day is a project of GiveMN, which serves more than 10,000 nonprofit organizations through its network of more than 340,000 donors. 2018 marks the 10th Give to the Max Day.

“Give to the Max Day is a great opportunity to help People Serving People continue to serve families in crisis and those in our community,” said Daniel Gumnit, CEO of People Serving People. “Our programs have a profound impact on the lives of children, youth, and families each year and we are humbled by the support shown to us on Give to the Max Day.”

Support from generous donors on Give to the Max Day ensures People Serving People can help more than 3,000 individuals and more than 1,100 households each year by offering three nutritious meals daily, safe emergency housing, toiletries, basic needs, and onsite programs designed to break cycles of homelessness and poverty.

“The need for crisis response and prevention efforts remains strong. Every gift received during our Give to the Max Day campaign ensures we can invest in emergency services, upstream programming, and systems change efforts,” said Noah Gerding, Director of Development for People Serving People. “The average age of children in our shelter is six years old; Give to the Max Day contributions help us offer early childhood and school-age programs to nearly 2,000 children in our community each year.”

People Serving People supports people like Chris and Felicia who turned to the organization for help with employment and housing needs for themselves and their four children. Working together with staff, Chris and Felicia are securing employment, improving their financial literacy, and gaining parenting and other life skills.

“There are people here who have your back,” said Chris. “We are in a shelter now, but we aren’t done living.”
In addition to Give to the Max Day on November 15, People Serving People will receive support from Blue Plate Restaurant’s annual Eat to the Max campaign from November 5 to 15. Diners at any Blue Plate Restaurant can have their donations matched, up to $10,000.

“We are fortunate to live in an area where so many individuals and institutions truly want to help others,” said Gumnit. “Give to the Max Day is a great way for people to make an immediate and profound impact on families in need in our community.”
