The impact of COVID 19 continues to impact all areas of WEAVE operations including how we engage the community. At this time, we have suspended all planned events and will revisit how we produce events within health guidelines.
This is a difficult decision for us. We thrive on bringing the community together to take action against violence. We look forward to engaging diverse voices as we learn, grow, and celebrate together.
Events also raise critical funds for WEAVE. Cancelled events in 2020 equate to $425,000 of lost revenue – a significant amount. If you would like to donate to help us through this tough time, you may do so here.
Prior to COVID 19, WEAVE hosted two large events a year, Feast for WEAVE in the Fall and Walk a Mile in Her Shoes in the Spring. These two events fundraising events raised $425,000 for WEAVE’s 24-hour crisis intervention services a year.
In addition to WEAVE hosted events, WEAVE partners with community partners who put on their own DIY events that support WEAVE. These events range in donation collection (money, gently used clothes, wish list items), vary in style, and you are invited to participate. WEAVE has updated our DIY Event Application to reflect the impact of COVID 19 and will continue to work with individuals, groups, and businesses who raise funds for WEAVE so that all fundraising activities can be done safely.
