At Port of Missions Outreach Ministries, we believe in the power of community and the impact of collective effort. Every day, we witness the transformative effects of providing essential resources to individuals who are striving to rebuild their lives. Imagine a person arriving at our organization, having recently found shelter in a group home, but needing essentials like toiletries, clothing, shoes, and even some snacks. Others might need furniture for their new place as they await their first paycheck from a new job. These needs, though they may seem small to some, are immense to those in such challenging situations.


Port of Missions Outreach Ministries is dedicated to meeting these immediate needs, offering a helping hand with resources that make a significant difference. Our clients always express immense gratitude when they receive nice clothing, great-looking shoes, and are greeted by our team’s warm, smiling faces. To ensure we can continue providing this crucial support, we are constantly exploring various fundraising ideas, including our upcoming fundraising event to support the homeless community.


One of our most exciting initiatives is the Elevating Black Voices Through Art Fundraiser. This event, scheduled for Saturday, June 15th, from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm, showcases the incredible talent of artists, with a special feature on the work of Rosemary Ollison, alongside other emerging artists. The fundraiser includes a variety of items for purchase such as clothing, purses, hats, jewelry pieces, and art prints.


This particular fundraising event to support the homeless holds additional significance as it coincides with Juneteenth, celebrated annually on June 19th. Juneteenth commemorates the emancipation of enslaved African Americans and serves as a reminder of the progress made and the journey ahead. By holding this fundraiser around Juneteenth, we aim to elevate the voices of Black artists and celebrate the rich cultural heritage and resilience of the Black community.


The Elevating Black Voices Through Art Fundraiser not only provides a platform for artists to showcase their work but also helps us raise crucial funds to support our mission. The proceeds from this fundraising event to support the homeless will go directly towards keeping our non-profit running and enabling us to continue offering vital resources to those in need. The impact of this fundraiser extends beyond the financial support; it fosters a sense of community, unity, and cultural appreciation.


To ensure the success of this fundraising event to support the homeless, we have incorporated several fundraising strategies. From partnering with local businesses for sponsorships to leveraging social media for promotion, we are committed to maximizing our reach and impact. Our goal is to create an unforgettable experience for attendees, highlighting the beautiful intersection of art, culture, and community support.


We invite everyone to join us in this meaningful celebration and support our cause. By participating in the Elevating Black Voices Through Art Fundraiser, you are not only purchasing unique and beautiful items but also contributing to a greater cause – helping those in our community who need it most.


As we prepare for this special event, we are filled with hope and excitement for the future. Together, we can make a significant difference, one step at a time, ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to rebuild their lives with dignity and hope.
