first_imgTrump’s campaign, party and other fundraising entities had $265 million in cash at the end of May. The Democrats and Biden, who launched his campaign in April 2019, held a combined $122 million, not including some fundraising entities that have not disclosed their records.Early in the 2020 campaign, Biden’s weak fundraising numbers compared to some of his Democratic competitors were a source of concern. But he has seen his fundraising from donors pick up in recent weeks as his lead in national opinion polls grew and the country reacted to incidents of police brutality.The event on Tuesday also shows the drawing power of Obama. He endorsed Biden, his former vice president, in April but has not been actively campaigning for Biden as in-person events were largely canceled due to the coronavirus.The Biden campaign is hoping to come close to matching Trump’s war chest so it can counter his advertising, get-out-the-vote operations in battleground states, and eventual campaign travel with their own.A high-dollar fundraising event held last week for Biden with 620 donors and hosted by Senator Elizabeth Warren took in $6 million, the most ever for Biden’s campaign. Topics : US Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s first 2020 fundraiser with former President Barack Obama has netted more than $4 million from more than 120,000 people ahead of their joint appearance on Tuesday, the campaign said.The virtual event could amount to Biden’s largest haul from small-dollar donors and comes on the heels of the Democratic Party and his campaign outraising President Donald Trump in May for the first time, $80.8 million to $74 million.The Republican president, who has been campaigning for a second term since 2017, still has a spending advantage ahead of the Nov. 3 presidential election.last_img read more

Within the first year, they have assisted well over 300 families within the county, some on more than one occasion.“I couldn’t do it without my volunteers, Betty Zeka and Charleen Mies,” Reed said.The organization offers a variety of services, including assisting families and individuals with utilities and rent.“We are trying to strengthen families by offering a variety of free classes and services to families and individuals,” Reed said.After the first of the year, they will be offering more classes, including Smart Rent and Getting Ahead. Smart Rent is a pilot program and the first of its kind in Kansas, and helps renters and landlords learn their rights and responsibilities. They will be working closely with Aaron Norton, city employee, and Mayor Shelley Hansel to get the program started. Getting Ahead is a 15 week class which investigates the impact of poverty and low wages and what it takes to get by and get ahead.Wellington Services is grateful for agencies they collaborate with to offer services, including Safe Homes, Futures Unlimited, Mission Thrift Shop, Work Force, DCF, Women of Wellington, City of Wellington, police and fire department, WALT, Salvation Army, Impact Bank, MIDCAP, Wheatland Services, Veterans Services, schools in Sumner County, Sumner County Moms, and many others. They are also members of the Wellington Chamber of Commerce and Ministerial Alliance.“If we can’t provide the service, we refer them to other agencies who can help,” Reed said. “We work closely in referrals to Mental Health, Futures, Work Force, as well as coordinating with every agency to find the correct resource for families and individuals.”With the generosity of donations, the organization provides emergency financial assistance, limited emergency food parcels, financial literacy, healthy parenting, healthy relationship classes and other individual needs.
