We are thrilled to share the remarkable success of our recent Donor Appreciation Event, the Generosity Gathering. RAIN hosted donors, sponsors, and community partners to express our heartfelt gratitude to those whose unwavering support advances our mission and work within the community. Held on March 5 at Resident Culture-South End, the event was a true testament to the power of generosity and community spirit. Attendees were asked to bring travel-size toiletries for The Drop. The wonderful community of support humbled us by donating over 400 toiletry items. We are always accepting items like this, so the next time you check out of a hotel, think of us!

From the moment guests arrived, the atmosphere buzzed with excitement and camaraderie. As they mingled and shared stories, attendees made birthday cards for staff to send to clients throughout the year. These personalized handmade tokens of love really represent the values of RAIN.

In addition to celebrating the past year's achievements, the event also served as a platform to share our vision for the future. Guests had the opportunity to learn about upcoming projects, initiatives, and opportunities for further involvement. Excitement echoed through the venue when I shared a secret with guests, which I will now share with you: the 2024 Gay Bingo theme!

As the event drew to a close, there was a palpable sense of gratitude and optimism in the air. Each guest departed with a renewed sense of purpose and a deeper appreciation for the profound impact of their generosity. Together, we celebrated our achievements, and the spirit of giving that unites us all. So, whether you were able to make it or not, I would like to thank you and let you know how important you are to RAIN and the community we serve. Thanks for all you do.
