GIVING BACK TO THE COMMUNITY
Entre Nous's mission statement is to inspire lifelong service, promote goodwill, and strengthen the community.
Every year after the Tour of Homes, *OUR LARGEST FUNDRAISER, a special committee is formed to reach out to the local charities to allow us to give back to the community the money raised through fundraisers,
These fundraising endeavors have included cookbook sales, attic sales, dances, dinners, and the most notable, the Holiday Tour of Homes. With the money raised, Entre Nous is able to give local non-profit organizations grant money for projects.
* 2020 The Festival of Trees
Additionally, we have also set aside a portion for the benevolent fund for hard-working individuals and families who are suddenly faced with small emergency expenses that they cannot afford. Throughout the decades, this fund has assisted families with car repairs, rent, vehicle and wheelchair repairs, utility bills, money for food, backpacks, and school supplies, and gas money to make sure a child or elderly relative can get to a medical appointment. The money set aside is a specific amount depending on the proceeds of the Tour of Homes. If you know someone who needs immediate assistance, please contact us through Facebook Messenger or email
In 2019 and 2020 we were able to provide financial assistance to local nonprofit organizations. The theme was H.O.P.E.
Helping Other People Excel.
