Quakerdale Family Services to Launch “So That All May Be Served” Fundraising Campaign

(Marshalltown, IA) – “So That All May Be Served” is the theme for Quakerdale Family Services’ 2019 Hope Fund fundraising campaign. The event will kick off on Wednesday, December 5 and conclude at midnight on Monday, December 31. The goal is to raise $5,000 to help provide supplemental funding for families who cannot afford the services they need.

Quakerdale Family Services’ mission is to encourage “… hope, faith, and growth in the families and communities we serve.” Unfortunately, there are times when families needing assistance do not have the resources necessary to pay for services.

We have established the Hope Fund
“So That All May Be Served”

Quakerdale Family Services believes that money should never stand in the way of anyone getting the help they need to build a better life. The Hope Fund provides funding for qualified families to help supplement their ability to pay in part or in whole. The following are ways you can get involved and make a difference in the lives of those needing a helping hand toward healing. Continue reading ““So That All May Be Served” Fundraising Campaign”
