December 23, 2016

So many folks have dropped off gifts at the house this week, we are overwhelmed with gratitude (and running out of storage space)! Thank you to everyone who has added to the joy of the season by directing your generosity to NUMAS Haus. We are so grateful!

NUMAS Haus is currently raising funds to continue its work into the coming year. If you would like to help, please send a check to NUMAS Haus at PO Box 291, New Ulm, MN 56073. Online giving is also available through GiveMN.org.

NUMAS Haus really needs volunteers to staff the shelter, especially evenings and weekends. If you would like to make a difference in this way, contact shelter director Patty Paulson (507-359-2202, patty@numashaus.org) and schedule an orientation session with her.

Thank you!

Give to the MAX! A letter from our Vice President…

Dear Friend of NUMAS Haus,

Thank you for being part of the NUMAS Haus community! Please join us November 17, 2016, for Give to the Max Day and help us continue to change lives by providing shelter and support services to mothers and children in Brown County and the New Ulm area. Each year, generous supporters like you celebrate Give to the Max Day by making online donations through GiveMN.org. Your generosity makes a difference far beyond the 24-hour giving event.

Your donation on Give to the Max Day also may help us receive an additional donation of $1,000. How? On November 17, every gift made through GiveMN.org will be entered into an hourly drawing for a $1,000 GiveMN Golden Ticket, to be awarded to a nonprofit organization. Your gift of $10 or more could instantly turn into an extra $1,000!

Here’s the really exciting part: Two donations made through GiveMN.org during the Give to the Max Day campaign will be randomly selected to receive a $10,000 Super-Sized GiveMN Golden Ticket! The more gifts we generate on GiveMN.org during Give to the Max Day, the more our chances increase to receive that additional $10,000 donation. Imagine what we could do with $10,000!

Our goal is to raise $5,000 on Give to the Max Day, and you can help us reach it. But you don’t have to wait for November 17 to roll around!

The Scheduled Giving period for Give to the Max Day 2016 is already underway!  All gifts made using GiveMN.org through November 16 will be scheduled to process on November 17, making those donations
eligible for all Give to the Max Day prizes!

Will you help us help homeless single mother families? Just follow this link to the NUMAS Haus page on the GiveMN.org website, and start making a difference!

Sincerely,

The Reverend Lisa M. Doege

House Blessing This Sunday

Join pastors from the New Ulm Ministerial Association at 4 PM this Sunday, August 14th, as they consecrate each room of NUMAS Haus in prayer. This brief service will seek God’s blessing for the house that will soon open its doors to homeless single mother families. This is the last time NUMAS Haus will be open to the public before it begins accepting client families into its program. Come add your own prayers to those spoken by the pastors, and rejoice with us that this God-sized vision is now a God-sized reality!

NUMAS Haus is located at 616 Center Street in New Ulm. Parking is available next door at First United Methodist Church, or in the Public Library lot.
