Sponsor A Family The DoorKnob Dinner Project

We’re very excited to announce the launch of DoorKnob Dinners” — a simple, community food drive project that we feel is a truly easy and affordable way for all of us to help.  Once a month volunteer donors leave a bag of groceries for one dinner for a family of five hanging on their doorknob… and a neighborhood coordinator picks it up and brings it to the local food pantry.  It’s that simple! Our goal is to feed our hungry neighbors, one neighborhood at a time.  Read more here.  Or, if you’re a group (a social club, church or synagogue group, etc.) and would like to engage your members or congregants in a food drive effort, email us and we’ll share our “Let’s Do Dinner!” project with you!

Food on the Move!

In an effort to make giving easy and “out-of-the-box,” we’ve created “Food on the Move!” – a simple way for people moving from one home to another to “share their bounty” on moving day!  Families cleaning out kitchen cupboards as they pack up to move can fill a shopping bag with unwanted nonperishable food items and hang it on their front doorknob, and their realtor will pick it up for a local food pantry.  Simple giving.  Learn more.

Shower To The People

We’re happy to announce that our  ”Shower To The People,” program is off and running, and that High Ridge Brands, the makers of Zest, Coast, Alberto VO5, White Rain and Rave, has launched our effort by donating and delivering pallets filled with thousands of bars of soap and bottles of shampoo and conditioner to 20 organizations across the country that serve the poor.

With the goal of providing 3 million “showers” by June 2014, High Ridge Brands joins our effort to help families in need put their best foot forward each and every day with dignity and pride.

Shower To The People” is a way for donors to help an American family in need get regular access to much needed personal care items.  Using our one-to-one family sponsorship model, the program provides basic items like soap and shampoo to some of our nation’s most poor and vulnerable.

In the fall of 2002 The New York Times ran a series of articles on poverty in the U.S. One of those articles described the township of Pembroke, Illinois, a community so poor that many houses had dirt floors and there were tires on the roofs to keep them from blowing away.

After reading that article, Pam Koner, a Westchester, New York mom and entrepreneur knew she had to do something to help. (More...)
