Safe Harbour Partners with F&M Trust on Annual Campaign and Linens & Things Drive

Safe Harbour has launched its yearly request for community support from residents, companies, and organizations in Cumberland County.  Safe Harbour’s 2019-2020 Annual Campaign seeks to garner dollars and donations to sustain the non-profit organization’s mission of providing housing and supportive services for homeless and nearly homeless individuals and families to help them achieve independent living by improving their basic life skills.

For the eleventh consecutive year, F&M Trust is the corporate partner of Safe Harbour’s Annual Campaign, committing its significant commercial resources and outstanding community reputation in support of the endeavor.  Tim Henry, President and CEO of F&M Trust, co-signed the social services organization’s annual appeal letter that is sent to friends, neighbors, supporters, and businesses throughout Cumberland County.

“Safe Harbour’s capacity to serve the community is extensively affected by the contributions received during our Annual Campaign,” said Brad Gerlach chair of the Safe Harbour Board of Directors. “Forty percent of our organization’s annual operating budget comprises funding from individual donors, local businesses, and foundations. Without the community’s generosity, Safe Harbour would be challenged to assist those who need our services.”

To inspire philanthropic giving, F&M Trust is providing a fundraising challenge to Safe Harbour donors.  That challenge includes:

  • $1,000 that F&M Trust has pledged to the campaign; and
  • An additional $2,000 to the Annual Campaign when 25 individuals or companies pledge to contribute $1,000 or more (including pledges to be made by monthly installments via credit card).

In addition to monetary support, Safe Harbour has needs for its residents that assist them in creating a safe and comforting place to live.  As a companion to Safe Harbour’s Annual Campaign, F&M Trust is hosting a “Linens & Things Drive” to collect personal care supplies at each of F&M Trust’s Cumberland County community offices. Donations may be placed in the laundry basket in the lobby of your nearest F&M Trust office.

You can help by donating (twin and full size) linens:

  • Sheets and Blankets
  • Mattress covers
  • Mattress Pads
  • Towels and washcloths
  • Pillows

You also donate personal care items:

  • Diapers
  • Body wash
  • Shampoo & conditioner
  • Shaving products
  • Dental supplies
  • Feminine hygiene products


F&M Trust and Safe Harbour appreciate any help provided for those who are in critical need.  No donation is too small.

Together, these contributions mean hope and love to those who benefit from Safe Harbour’s shelter and services.
