2023 Gala Dates To Come

Dear Community Friend,

For 45 years, CONTACT of Mercer County has assisted local residents experiencing crisis or contemplating suicide. While CONTACT is made up of professionally trained volunteers, we can’t do it alone. Please consider supporting CONTACT financially, so we can continue to help those in need of a critical service.

By the Numbers in 2019, Suicides in the United States were:
• Attempted by more than 1.2 million people
• the Second leading cause of death for youths
• the Tenth leading cause of death for adults

Through its Volunteers in 2020, CONTACT of Mercer County has:
• Answered nearly 2,100 calls for people in suicidal crisis
• Responded to more than 2,300 Lifeline Crisis Chats
• Initiated almost 13,000 wellness calls to seniors living alone through CONTACT’s Reassurance program

CONTACT accomplishes a great deal. However, we need your help to continue to provide valuable resources to our community.

With thanks and gratitude,
Debi Gallo, Gala Chair and Eleanor K. Letcher, M.Ed., CSW, Executive Director
