FCSN faces huge challenges in renovating our new center due to construction cost rising 2-3 times higher than before. It will cost about $2M to complete. In order to support the desperate families who need services for their loved ones with special needs, we need your help to expand our dream for them.
We only have three more days and are $5,000shy of achieving the double matching goal. FCSN will receive $50,000 if we raise $25,000 by 11/5/2021. Support and help us outreach to as many donors as possible. Click here to donate. Donations of $20 or more will receive a complimentary virtual gala ticket for Saturday, 11/6, from 4-6pm.
