Neighbor by Neighbor Monthly Newsletter for August 2022
Neighbor by Neighbor needs more Neighbors!
With the 13% inflation rate of food and the 25-50% increase in rent, residents of Harbor Country are struggling. One of our Neighbor by Neighbor senior clients had a $400 rent increase. She was paying $800/month for rent, and her landlord raised the cost to $1,200/month, and this woman only receives $1,000 a month from Social Security. Considering this, Neighbor by Neighbor cordially invites you to attend our “friendraiser” at The Acorn Theater on Wednesday, August 31st at 7 PM. It will be a great night of electrifying music by the group, PureSoul. They will feature songs by artists like Ray Charles, Billie Holliday, Otis Redding, etc. At this event, attendees will learn more about Neighbor by Neighbor clients and the struggles they face every day.
Additionally, guests will learn what they can do to make a difference – giving financially, volunteering, or spreading the word about Neighbor by Neighbor’s programs. Join us and get educated while being entertained! General Admission tickets are available for $25 and are selling out quickly.
