How Pick.Click.Give. makes a difference
Every gift makes a difference in the fight against hunger. Particularly unrestricted charitable donations and gifts help us to put resources wherever our clients needs are highest. In 2016 we served over 660,000 meals to those most in need in our community, including children who are food insecure. This is because we have been committed to expanding our services to meet the needs in the community, and also to leverage partnerships to help us do so. Unrestricted revenues allowed us to purchase and deliver more meals to those who need it most, 365 days a year. Additionally, we also were able to provide thousands of referrals to clients for the social services they need to stabilize and break the cycle of homelessness, such as jobs, housing, veterans benefits, medical, mental health and substance abuse treatment. The Pick.Click.Give. contributions are vital in allowing us to be flexible when we experience an increase in emergent needs. The unrestricted revenues means we can put our efforts toward increased meals, increased emergency cold weather overflow shelter, or increased weekend food bags for hungry kids. Every gift provides so much more than just a meal when you Pick,Click.Give. to Bean's Cafe and The Children's Lunchbox.
