More Than 90 Cents of Every Dollar Goes to Client Services

Our number one wish is for everyone in our community to have full stomachs, good health, and a place to call home. A combination of generous cash donations, a fleet of more than 1,300 volunteers, and invaluable in-kind support ensures that more than 90 cents of every dollar donated goes directly to support programs that serve our neighbors in need.
