Room At The Inn
Initiative Results: This initiative ran from April 23 - May 7, 2020 and Georgetown sponsored a total of 160 rooms for use by the Holland Rescue Mission and their short term transitional housing needed during Covid. Thank you Georgetown community for your generous donations!
Initiative Details: Deacons found a way we could concretely help people in need. Short-term and transitional housing is a huge need in Ottawa County under normal circumstances, and COVID-19 only magnified this problem. The Holland Rescue Mission partnered with local hotels and arranged for families to have access at the rate of $59 per night. The Rescue Mission secured six rooms for a month and reached out to its partner organizations in the hope of securing 20 additional rooms for a month.
We would like to help the Rescue Mission make that happen. If you would like to donate funds for a family for a night, please send a donation or donations in $59 increments to Georgetown, payable to Georgetown, and mark on the memo line: Room at the Inn. If you cannot contribute the full night's stay, feel free to do what you can. If you can buy more than one night, we encourage you to do so.
