    IDS Fundraising for PIF Projects: Team Spartan Initiative


    So far this year, your PIF committee finished work with The Fairway Foundation and NARI NYC/LI to give away a mortgage-free, completely renovated, beautifully designed home to a Purple Heart Veteran!  The funds that were raised for this project have been spent—and we need to replenish the account.  Our PIF projects are some of the most rewarding community work we do as an IDS Chapter—we hope that you will donate to support our upcoming PIF projects. 


    We were brainstorming about creative ways to raise funds for our ongoing PIF projects – and so we’re announcing a new Fundraising initiative close to the heart of some of our members.  Meet IDS Team Spartan! 


    The IDS Team Spartan ran a Sprint race earlier this year, and is now going for the Trifecta, which includes running the Super Race and a Beast Race in the upcoming months.  Our next race is this Saturday—and we’re asking you to Sponsor our team.  All Sponsorship funds will be earmarked for the Pay It Forward (PIF) projects.


    The IDS LI has a new Pay It Forward project: MOMMAS House.  MOMMAS House provides housing and support services to young mothers and their babies.  The residential homes give the mother the opportunity to continue her education or vocational experience interrupted by pregnancy.  Many of the homes are older buildings in need of home improvement or updated furnishings—the IDS LI has started working on these projects as new mothers’ rooms become available.


    Thank you for your generosity in time, supplies, mental and emotional dedication and sponsorship!  Please give what you can to help support IDS Pay It Forward Projects.  Let’s go Team IDS!
