Jamestown Pig Pickin’
The 11th Annual
Jamestown Pig Pickin’ — Safe at Home Campaign
runs through Friday, October 9, 2020
Honorary Chair: Dr. Kathryn Rogers
With the safety of our guests as our top priority and with the uncertainty of large gatherings in the near future, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Jamestown Pig Pickin’ event.
To continue meeting the needs of Family Service of the Piedmont’s more than 17,000 clients dealing with issues of domestic violence, child abuse, mental health and financial stability, we are launching the Jamestown Pig Pickin’ Safe at Home Campaign.
We hope you and your family are Safe at Home, but we know many in our community are not safe. Calls to our law enforcement partners are up 30%. Family Service is serving victims who are experiencing situations that are more complex, intense and higher risk. The environment created by stay-at-home orders, heightened unemployment, financial emergencies, and dire mental health situations has created an abuser’s dream and a victim’s nightmare.
Your support of the Jamestown Pig Pickin’ is integral to help finance Family Service of the Piedmont’s programs in our community. You can help us continue building safe and healthy families in our community by committing to sponsoring the Safe at Home Campaign this year.
Hosts and Sponsors
Key to the success of the Pig Pickin’ is the support we receive from local businesses and individuals. Sponsors will be listed on the Pig Pickin’ program (taking the place of the usual event invitation, and mailed to 2,000 people in the Jamestown area), and will receive a Jamestown Pig Pickin’ Safe at Home yard sign to show their support. Sponsors will also be recognized on the Family Service of the Piedmont website and social media (Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and Twitter), in the agency’s newsletter and in thank you ads in both the Jamestown News and the Greensboro News & Record.
