Giving Tuesday


Today I Will Be A Hero

“We live in a world in which we need to share responsibility. It’s easy to say, ‘It’s not my child, not my community, not my world, not my problem.’ Then there are those who see the need and respond. I consider those people my heroes.”  –Fred Rogers (Spoken in 1994, quoted in his obituary in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette)

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

During the summer of 2017, we witnessed, and were quite possibly impacted by, the incredible destruction that took place in Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico, Mexico, and California.  In response to the events that caused that destruction, we saw people help each other without regard to political affiliation, race, sexual orientation, or immigration status. We saw people come together with one goal – to save the lives of other people.

As a country, we are at our best in a time of crisis and we become heroes.  So why wait until a major crisis to become a hero?  Become a hero today!

Depression, anxiety, family conflict, and substance abuse are but a few of the daily crises many friends, family, and neighbors face each and every day.  Since 1960, Family & Community Services of Somerset County (FCSSC) has provided professional outpatient mental health and addiction services to many folks who might not otherwise be able to afford treatment.

Like so many nonprofit organizations, FCSSC needs heroes like you to allow us to remain in the community and continue to help others.  A small gift from you can make a big impact on others.  Please take a few moments and consider sending a donation to FCSSC.

Please donate now #GIVING TUESDAY

Wishing you and your family a happy holiday season,
