What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Meals for Our Friends

In order to combat the issue of hunger that is so prevalent in our communities, we have created the "Meals for Our Friends" initiative. Through this program, we strive to provide pre-packaged hot meals, snacks, and grocery items for families in need. We partner with numerous other non-profit organizations and local businesses in order to maximize the effort and reach of this program.

Our fundraising activities are carried out throughout the Month of May, in which we collect both donated items, and monetary donations and gift cards. The individuals, groups, and organizations we help are brought to us mainly through referrals or through research conducted by our team. Our distribution efforts are carried out until all resources are exhausted.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To be able to increase our funds so that we can continue running our charitable programs.

We are increasing our fundraisings and contacting (in-person, via email/mail, and via social media) businesses and companies to see if they would like to join our charitable efforts. We have hired a social media and fundraising coordinator to help us achieve our goals.

We have a very good reputation in our community and people like the work that we do, so our chances of getting the help we need are very good because we work hard to achieve them.

Thanks to our programs, this year, we have been able to provide:

* Five (5) scholarships to deserving students in Polk County, FL.
* $800.00 worth of pet supplies to the Humane Society of Polk County in Winter Haven, FL.
* $3,023.57 worth of pre-packaged meals and food items to needy families in Polk County, FL.
* 75 backpacks full of school supplies to elementary students in the Polk County area.
* A donation of 50 Hot Dog Meals to students at Lake Wales HS in Polk County, FL.
* A donation of 50 Meals to the Called to Serve Farmworkers Organization in Mulberry, FL.
* A donation of $4,000 worth of hand sanitizers to other nonprofit organizations in the Polk County, FL area.
* A donation of two Ice Shaving Party Packages to the kits at the Boys and Girls Club of Haines City, FL.

What's next?

Next year, we want to be able to get to touch double the lives that we touched this year with our programs, but in order for us to do that, we need your help. Please, consider donating to our organization to help us change lives and make a difference in our community.
