I’ve worked in various areas of nonprofit and charity over the past 20 years but I have to say my current org is my favorite. Not only are the people amazing, but we are working towards team solutions for the problem -not just slapping a bandaid on it.
For working tirelessly to provide food for individuals and families in crisis by distributing food to 160 partner agencies, pantries and pick up sites;
For providing an unobtrusive and refillable backpack every Friday for local kids to take home so they don’t have to go hungry when school isn’t in session;
For providing (at no cost, with a stipend) basic training and SERVSAFE certifications to members of the community and partnering with local business to provide employment so they won’t feel good insecurity again;
For creating a partnership with local farmers to donate excess produce;
For partnering with more local farms to provide space and equipment to grow our own produce for distribution;
For creating a seed-to-supper program that teaches members of the community how to grow, harvest and prepare their own food (at no cost);
For providing a Fresh 2 You mobile food truck experience that goes in to the communities and allowed anyone to purchase or pick up fresh produce and whole grains;
For working so hard to eradicate the causes of food insecurity and hunger and for doing it in a manner that protects our community members dignity and pride, I nominate my organization-the Chester County Food Bank
My apologies for the novel-I’m just so passionate about our mission and we need all the help we can get! 🙂
We are so thrilled to be featuring DPP as part of our upcoming Generosity Xchange virtual conference that is being held on October 19-20. One of the things that is great about our respective approaches is how community-driven things are, so I’m so grateful that Louis is helping facilitate this donation through a community process.
@Spring, you’re not! Feel free to add a comment with your org.
OK, Milwaukee Area Technical College (MATC) Foundation is the nonprofit that exist to support students and program innovation at MATC (the largest, most diverse college in WI with a high financial need student population). A contribution at MATC Foundation to the Checota Fund (matched 2x!) is used to provide MATC students in short term technical or certificate programs every opportunity to finish quickly and join the workforce immediately by removing all barriers to their success – includes tuition, fees, books, childcare, transportation, food and housing! AMAZING investment in the diverse talent pipeline. Every donated dollar is matched generously TWICE by Ellen and Joe Checota (details https://www.matc.edu/foundation/matc-checota-scholarship.html). A $250 donation will amount to a $750 donation – unheard of ROI for a philanthropic gift. Give here: www.matc.edu/donate and THANK YOU!
Love this! I love my org but I love so many others too that I hope I’m not too late to nominate one
