Join our new project! #40for$40

Be A Blessing is at it again! We're calling on our network for help supplying the Katherine K. Hanley Family Shelter with gasoline cards.

In getting to know our partner, we have learned that most of the Shelter Residents are single mothers with multiple children, and many rely on shared rides to search for permanent housing and employment. In some cases transportation expenses are the only thing keeping them from moving in with family members willing to help. Your donation of one tank of gas will help them move forward to achieve the stability they need.

Can you donate a $40 gas card today toward our #40for$40 campaign?

Here are step-by-step instructions to purchase the card online. OR if you'd prefer, we would be happy to make the purchase for you! Just send $43 via PayPal to and we’ll take care of filling out the form.*
