Mother's Day Fundraiser

Dear Supporters and Friends,

We at Town Clock Community Development Corporation would like to wish everyone a happy Mother’s Day! Whether you are a mother yourself or are spending the day celebrating the wonderful mothers in your life, we hope you are enjoying your day despite these unprecedented circumstances.

As you may know, Town Clock has been raising funds for our Mother’s Day campaign. We are pleased to announce that with the help of a very generous Match Challenge from an anonymous donor, we were able to raise over $9,800 to support our resident survivors! Your donations will allow us to give $50 to each resident as a Mother’s Day gift, as well as add to the education fund, which will enable these women to participate in future professional development opportunities, such as job training courses, tuition to technical schools and universities, music/theater training, and more. We are so grateful to you for making a difference in the lives of these courageous survivors.

As a special Mother’s Day treat, we’d also like to share with you a beautiful example of the work that artist and cartoonist Lauren Weinstein has been creating with our residents, funded through a grant award from the Middlesex County Cultural and Arts Trust Fund. In partnership with coLAB Arts and Town Clock CDC, Lauren has been working for the past several months with our residents to help them create original art that allows them to tell their own stories.

 

In this watercolor piece, you can see two mothers and their children drawing images of their lives, while light shines down on them through the stained glass windows of the First Reformed Church of New Brunswick, the building that houses Dina’s Dwellings and provides homes for survivors of domestic violence. Lauren is in the process of creating a graphic novel about Town Clock and the women who live in Dina’s Dwellings, and we’re so excited to see this incredible artistic storytelling come to life.

Thank you for being part of the Town Clock family of supporters and making this important work possible. Below you can see the names of some special mothers as we acknowledge the dedications that some of you made in your gifts to Town Clock. We hope that you have a wonderful Mother’s Day, and that you continue to stay safe and healthy during this time.

With love,
