SBA Gives: Home is Where the Heart Is

Our 2019 Community Giving Campaign was “Home is Where the Heart Is” – a fundraiser for The Road Home of Dane County! The Road Home provides opportunities for homeless children and their families to achieve self-determined goals and affordable, stable housing.
Our goal was to raise enough funds and supplies to help 10 local families avoid homelessness. We did this through a Diaper Drive, a Giving Tree, an Ian’s Pizza Dough Raiser, a staff Lip Sync Contest, by selling Candy Grams to our residents, and other fun competitive events.
We’re proud to share that in 2019, we raised $6,000 and 12,773 diapers for The Road Home of Dane County!
100% of the donations are going directly to the families: Diaper donations will be distributed to families throughout the year, and dollar donations will be used to provide emergency assistance with rent and deposit payments.
Thank you to everyone who participated in this campaign and for helping us support families in the Madison area!
