Dear Friend,

Net of Compassion restores hope. We do that, with your help, by offering programs that work to alleviate homelessness, poverty, and food insecurity. Along with meals, and safe, consistent shelter—a hot shower can provide dignity and hope to someone who's living on the streets. Our Shower Trailer Program (the only mobile shower trailer in Worcester) is a critical component of our programming. With your help, we can keep those showers running.

That is why, once again, we've launched our April Showers fundraiser. We're raising money so we can continue to offer hot showers through April and beyond. Your gift to our April Showers fundraiser
will help keep the shower trailer in operation and keep offering hope.

Forty Showers Every Day

Over the course of our Hotel Grace season (October 3, 2021–May 14, 2022), we estimate that our shower trailer will provide approximately 9,000 showers—that's forty showers every day. That means that forty individuals got a fresh start to their day or had a rejuvenating moment to calm and collect themselves. That can mean the world to someone who has been on the streets of Worcester all day, every day.
 

225,000 Gallons of Water

A 10-minute shower can consume more than 25 gallons of water. That means we pay for as many as 225,000 gallons of water. It also means in order to sustain the shower program, every day we provide:
  • 40 towels
  • 40 pairs of clean underwear
  • 40 pairs of sandals
  • soap, shampoo, and other shower items
Your donation will help us defray the cost of running the shower program so that we can sustain hot showers for anyone who needs one, throughout the year.
Will You Help?

  • Shampoo & Conditioner

As always, your generosity and support is tremendously appreciated! We couldn't do this work without you and together we can provide dignity and a pathway to hope all year round.
Sincerely,

The Net of Compassion Team
