Help us take advantage of the incredible opportunity of MATCHING FUNDS, up to $10,000 through this Go Fund Me campaign!
We are the "run to the grocery store" for thousands of families in Southside.
We know it is paramount we step up to meet the challenges the coronavirus has already presented locally to displaced workers and individuals who lack the resources to acquire basic needs in uncharted territory. And stand ready to meet whatever is to come.
We will continue to reinvent the way we help as the global and national projections hit home in Martinsville and Henry County.
Why We Need Your Help
* Our Food Rescue Program usually salvages an average of thirty thousand pounds of food per month. During the ‘run on the grocers’ that program has experienced interruptions.
* Our Backpack Program has been affected by the longterm school closures. We are working to coordinate with schools to get bags out to the families who depend on them, but this will likely be an expensive change to an already expensive initiative.
* Our Thrift Store is the biggest funder of the social services we provide. It has been temporarily closed by the Governor's 'stay at home' order. Our staff have been furloughed and we've lost approximately $12,800 in funding due to this closure, alone.
* We anticipate a hike in need for our food services, given the mass layoffs and uncertainties going forward. Now's the time we need your help more than ever.
