This Year at GMC, Give & You Might Receive!

Georgetown Ministry Center is excited to announce our 12 Days of Giving Campaign!

This year, we’ve partnered with 11 generous local businesses who have joined forces with us to help end homelessness! These amazing establishments have donated prizes to be given away one-by-one during each day of our 12-day online fundraising campaign which will run December 11 – December 22.

The way it works is simple: Each participating establishment has been assigned a day. Donate to GMC on that day, and/or share that day’s campaign link on your Facebook, Twitter and/or Instagram accounts (don’t forget to tag GMC so we see it!), and you could win a prize! Keep an eye on your inbox and check GMC’s social media pages throughout the life of the campaign to receive details about each day’s prize give-away.

We hope you’ll join us and our amazing community supporters to achieve our end of year fundraising goal to support GMC’s center operations. It’s the Season of Giving and we are grateful to our community of supporters who have given so generously to this campaign — see their prize donations below and then get ready for Day 1 of the campaign, kicking off on Monday, December 11!
