Need a last minute tax deduction

The Ark.jpeg (2)The Ark Domestic Violence Shelter is asking for your financial help of $1000.00 for good quality mattress covers for beds for their shelter.

 

The Ark has 17 twin beds, two trundles beds, 4 full size beds, several youth and baby beds to cover.  They also need a couple of spare mattress covers. They have tried the cheaper mattress covers to no avail. They do not stand the wear and tear that their traffic creates. The cost they have already been out is enormous. These covers are pricey, (about $39 each) and there is no room in their current budget to purchase these.

 

If 20 people would donate $50, this would help The Ark purchase these and meet their goal of $1000. If you are interested in donating making a tax deductible donation to The Ark please contact Executive Director Terri Densman at 325-643-2699 or mail your donation to The Ark PO Box 1202 Brownwood, TX 76804. Any amount will be appreciated.
