Please Help Our Friends at PARC Help the People!
It’s time to pay rent again, by the 6th of July. We just paid off big phone and electric bills, leaving us with no money! Also, as you might have read in a previous email, PayPal cut us off from using donations (although they keep letting people put money INTO the account) purportedly because we do not have a non-profit and they think we are scamming people by telling them that their donations are tax-deductible. Something like that… We have refunded all donations that have come to PayPal since the end of May.
We are broke.
We are working on creating a different way for online donations to come in, but at the moment , we need donations to come either in person or by mail. If that is not feasible for you and you want to put it directly into a bank account from yours, please call and we will give you a way to do that to one of PARC’s volunteer’s accounts.
Although our online donation situation is on hold right now, time moves on and rent must be paid.
Please pass on our donation request to other caring folks, perhaps with your own description of why you believe that people should support PARC [Peoples' Action for Rights and Community]. Also, we can send you a description of the resources offered here and the philosophy of the space and the work that goes on at PARC.
We know times are hard, but they would be much harder for many without this place. Without donations, we cannot continue. Please do what you can to help us raise $750 in the next 5 days.
