WE DID IT!

Thanks to your help, Love UT Give UT 2014 was a HUGE success!

In just 24 hours on Thursday, March 20th, YOU helped us raise more than $8000! We surpassed our matching grant after a day of fundraising, sharing, partying and fun!

The morning began early with a bagel and coffee booth for clients at 6:30 AM. We received about $400 in cash from our generous clients, many of whom are single mothers with two or more children. In the evening, we had a Coney Island-themed party for volunteers to come and reach out to their social media bases.

We met our matching grant with two hours to spare and were able to fill our ‘giving house’ (which appeared in this front page Deseret News article that morning!) the next day.

Unbelievable! Not only was Neighborhood House able to meet its personal goal, but the entire LUGU campaign raised over $1 million in just 24 hours! Neighborhood House was also able to finish 6th for number of donations and 4th for amount donated out of 96 large organizations.

We just want to take a quick minute and say another HUGE thank you to everyone who donated and shared Neighborhood House’s pictures and stories. Your help is invaluable and goes to serve the families in our community. Thank you so much!

We would also like to thank the Community Foundation of Utah, who presented the LUGU campaign, and Friendemic, the social media agency who put LUGU in the minds of every Utahn!
