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

Food Pantry

Our main Program! Guests may come once every 7 days to needed food items. We are open Monday 3-6, Tues 1:30-4 for those 60+ or disabled 4-6 for all, Wed 3-6, and Sat 1-4. Food items vary depending on what we get donated, but fall into the categories of frozen meat, cooler items ( such as yogurt, diary, deli ), fresh produce, Bread, Bakery, and non perishable. We always have a few unlimited items up front as well. We currently feed around 8500+ people representing 36 counties in Southern and Central Indiana.

Population(s) Served

This is a program during the summer months, while school is out, where children, or those with children can come an extra time per week to receive kid friendly food ( such as hot dogs, lunchables, granola bars, fruit, mac n cheese etc ). We load up the van and go to 6 different locations every week in Monroe, Owen and Lawrence counties. Families/care givers can come once every 7 days to the children's program AND still go to regular pantry as well. Schedule is posted on our facebook, Instagram and website. Children also receive a hand made, drawstring back pack that they can keep and use during school.

Population(s) Served

Starting Sept 1, those in need can sign up thru our website or in person, to receive a Thanksgiving Box the weekend before Thanksgiving. The box contains a meat choice and 14 items of the fixings of a traditional Thanksgiving Meal. This is scaled to the families size and we ask "How many are you feeding on Thanksgiving"/ we encourage people to invite friends and family, as these holiday bonding times are very important for mental health. This program averages 2400+ families a yr which is almost 20000 people. Here is the link to a video on the 2023 Thanksgiving distribution: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hnVYH3Pnwww&t=11s&ab_channel=Pantry279

Population(s) Served

Once every 30 days, guests may come in and use our clothing and household items pantry. It is on Thursdays 11-4. At this time, we close down the food pantry and turn it into a clothing/items pantry. Guests get a shopping cart and may fill it with anything they need from our non food items, all free. We have all sizes, both male and female, bedding, towels, dishes, cookware, books, toys, baby items, to name a few.

Population(s) Served

ELF Dispatch is our most popular program, and most magical! It is a Children's Christmas Gifting Program, similar to Angel Tree. Parents can sign up their children ages 0-18 ( as long as still in school ) to be matched with a "Santa" who has agreed to "adopt" them and purchase Christmas gifts. Gifts are wrapped and dropped off at ELF HQ, the parent's home or shipped direct. This program usually fills up with in less than 12 hours of sign up opening. Our Head ELF checks around to make sure children are NOT signed up with any other gifting program. Those who do not get into the sign up, and have not signed up with any other gifting program, may come to "Extra Toy Day" and choose from toys and clothing donated. In 2023, we were able to provide over 2034 children with a fantastic Christmas! Here is a link to our video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T3pkVWYZ8NM&t=20s&ab_channel=Pantry279

Population(s) Served

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
