Any comments about your selections you would like to share with the student philanthropists?
We provide survival supplies to those living in homeless camps and tent cities. Every year we donate a minimum of six beds to children who have never had a bed of their own. Additionally, we distribute groceries 2-3 times a week at local soup kitchens and the local community college to those who are experiencing food insecurity along with laundromat and haircut vouchers and bus passes for the homeless. We also reconcile delinquent meal account balances at several local schools and provide school supplies for students in need. We have also aided families who have lost their homes in a fire.
EVERY single penny donated goes directly to the homeless and those in need and stays in Lake, Summit, and Cuyahoga Counties although our mission is to aid anyone in need in Ohio. We have always operated at a deficit as we do not claim mileage, we use our personal vehicles, and pay for fuel and car insurance and business cards out of our own pockets. We have no overhead, operate out of my home, and have a $0.00 salary.
Does your organization have volunteer opportunities available for students? * Yes, Grades 6 – 8
