WE NEED A NEW FREEZER!

Volunteers In Service To Others (VISTO).   Locted in North Texas, VISTO is Cooke County's emergency food pantry.
In  2015, we served just over 15,000 individuals; in 2016 we served 155,451 meals (184,142 pounds of food) to over 17, 714 individuals, that's a 17% growth in just one year.  We are seeing an increase in the number of people in our community who need assistance, but we do not have the freezer space to keep the amounts of meat on hand to feed everyone who walks through our doors.
We are a local non-profit agency and we do not receive any state or federal funding. 96% of all donations go directly to our programs.  All gifts of food or money are generously donated by area churches, business', schools, and private citizens,  Food is sorted, dated, and packed by volunteers.
 An average meal in Cooke County costs $3.06; with only one dollar, VISTO can buy 10 pounds of food and provide 6 meals to hungry families.   

VISTO is asking you to please donate Just One Dollar to help support our goal to purchase a walk-in freezer so we can help feed more poeple who suffer food insecurity.
Your generous donation of Just One Dollar can touch so many lives !  

Thank you.

Will you help us feed those who need our help?
Take a look at the freezer we want to replace...a new freezer will go a long way to providing people with fresh meat and other healthy foods.

We were not aware of the minimum donation of $5 when we initiated this campaign--we just want people to know how much VISTO can do with one dollar. Please know that we truly appreciate any support you can offer us as we look forward to purchasing a new freezer which will allow us to feed more people.
