Pam Foxx opened her office door Monday morning and was shocked to discover water pouring from the ceiling and chunks of saturated sheet rock littering her desk.

As our long-time HR Director, Pam's first concern was the personnel files. "I just prayed they weren't damaged," she confided. "That would have been a disaster."

Sadly, UrbanPromise did not escape last week's "Bomb Cyclone" and subfreezing temperatures unscathed.

With a broken furnace in the CamdenForward School, our pipes were vulnerable to the savage cold. They burst. Water gushed overnight, flooding offices and our sixth grade classroom.

The estimate to replace the furnace: $20,000.

One problem: I don't have the finances to fund the project. I didn't budget for this emergency.

That's why I'm reaching out to you today. I know you're concerned that our children and staff have a warm, safe place in which they can learn and work.

Here's how we can get the furnace replaced by the end of the week:

  • 1 giver at $5,000
  • 2 givers at $2,500
  • 5 givers at $1,000 
  • 10 givers at $500 
  • 10 givers at $250
  • 25 givers at $100

Thanks for considering this urgent request! If everyone gives something, I will be able to make that call to the HVAC company today. 

In advance, I thank you for your gift.
