#GivingTuesday Campaign 2022 IKE Center

The IKE Center has established itself as one of the leading vocational rehabilitation centers for adults with disabilities in the USA. We open our doors to the most vulnerable members of our community, striving to teach, train, and inspire those who have been told of their limitations to reach beyond their limits. Our success has led our dedicated team to create our own venture, Ike’s Gourmet Dog Treat Cookie Company, now the fastest-growing dog treat company in the Country.
Ike’s Gourmet dog treat cookies can be found on the shelves of America’s largest employee-owned grocery store chain, Hy-Vee, with more than 300 locations spanning eight states. QVC will soon begin filming our baking facilities and chefs, adults with disabilities, to help launch the premiere of the first dog treat cookie company ever to air in front of their audience of 25 million. Five warehouses are being filled with product for tv and online sales as we will soon tell the story of the IKE Center and Ike’s Gourmet to the world.
The constant political pressure to close or cut state and federal funding to programs like ours is exhausting. Worse, it takes precious time and resources away from our mission and responsibilities. Financial independence would enable us to focus on our most treasured resource, our clients, who have found meaning in their lives and a supportive and caring family within our walls.
Now is the time to seize the moment as opportunity knocks on our door. Within our 65,000 sq. ft. facility, which we proudly own, we have the chance to create a handicap-accessible commercial kitchen enabling us to continue to grow our sales. Even larger retailers have expressed interest in purchasing our dog treat cookies once our daily production increases to meet their minimum orders.
Without a dollar allotted to advertising, we have made our mark on the retail marketplace and are well on our way to reaching our sales goal of $1,000,000. But this can only be achieved with your assistance. Your donations can keep this dream alive. Updated machinery and equipment are needed now to keep pace. Our dream is real and pressing. Your tax-deductible donation will be used immediately to keep the momentum flowing. Our #GivingTuesday Campaign relies on you and your support to achieve this dream for our clients. We thank you for your generosity.

#GivingTuesday is November 29, 2022, An International Day of Giving
