To the 12-Step Recovery Community:
The Warrenton Meeting Place (TWMP) Board of Directors has entered into a contract with the Town of Warrenton to purchase the building at 26 3rd St. in Warrenton, which the Town put on the market to raise money for a new Town Hall. Now, we need your help.
Under the contract, if we cannot raise the funds needed for purchase of the building that houses TWMP, the Town is free to sell it to another buyer. Our goal is to keep TWMP’s doors open as a safe place for the meetings that are essential to 12-Step Recovery.
Consequently, we are kicking off a capital campaign to raise the funds necessary to buy the building. The goal is to raise $350,000 by the end of January 2021. The funds will purchase the building, cover inspection, legal and other expenses related to the purchase, and make needed improvements, including handicapped access and window replacement.
The Board must acknowledge that this is a particularly difficult time for TWMP financially. Given an alternative, we would not have chosen this moment to purchase our building. The ongoing COVID virus restrictions on public gatherings have limited the size of our usual meetings and drastically reduced the funds contributed by the 12-Step Groups that use the facility. Our need for funding has increased at precisely the time that our income has decreased.
If we all contribute what we can to get through this extraordinary period, TWMP will be in a better position to help others gain the strength in recovery that the members of 12-step recovery groups meeting at TWMP have enjoyed.
Donations in any amount are welcome. They can be made via check to The Warrenton Meeting Place, P.O. Box 3103, Warrenton, VA 20188, or via the PayPal account listed on the twmp.org website and our Facebook page, Friends of TWMP. For those who prefer to make a wire transfer of funds, please contact Katy B., our board chair, with a Facebook message; or Beth A., who is heading up our capital campaign, at 540-270-8138.
TWMP is a 501(C)3 non-profit corporation formed to acquire, manage, and maintain the facility. All contributions will be anonymous, and all donor information will be confidential. Contributions are tax deductible, and receipts can be provided if needed.
Thank you in advance for your generous donations. With your help, TWMP will continue making Warrenton 12-Step Recovery available for years to come.
