Francine’s Friends Aims to Raise $50,000 in 50 Days for a New Coach

In 2005, when Francine’s Friends was established, a refurbished coach was purchased and at that time, the coach was given a 5 to 7 year span for productive service. As the organization works through its 6th year, it is experiencing unscheduled maintenance issues that keep the coach off the road and unable to serve the women in our communities.

Francine’s Friends has been quietly raising funds to purchase a new coach. True to the spirit of its name sake, Francine Schubert who always met challenges with enthusiasm and determination, the organization has raised all but $50,000 of its goal! On August 19th, Francine’s Friends kicked off the “50 in 50” campaign on to raise that final $50,000 in 50 days!

You can support the campaign by donating at the following businesses- just drop your donation in the donation box: Cindy Friend Lifestyle Studio, Jophiels, Lopshire Flowers, Susan’s, Woodhouse Spa, Anytime Fitness on Dupont, Best Buy at Northcrest, Cardinal Fitness on Illinois and on Maplecrest, Casa’s, Chick Fil-A, Cookie Cottage, various Curves locations throughout NE Indiana, Elegant Occasions, Fort Wayne Urban League, Fresh Market, Friends & Friends Too, Lifecare of LaGrange, McMahon Tire, Milan Center & Feed, Minnie’s Diner, Northview Inn & Suites, Peerless Cleaners, Pine Ridge Raquet & Fitness, PNC in Woodburn, The Vitamin Shoppe, and Trendsetters Hair Design.
