“Gap” Pantry to Help Families Caught in Between
Together with Red Bird Mission in Beverly, KY we’re excited to announce the opening of the new “Gap” Pantry. Intended to help the working poor, who aren’t eligible for Red Bird’s regular food pantry, the Gap Pantry provides families with incomes just above the poverty line with fresh groceries every month. Each family is required to work at the pantry in order to benefit, and Family-to-Family provides sponsors. A sponsorship for one gap family is only $10 a month! Read more or sponsor a family here.
Keller Williams Chooses F-to-F Giving Project for “Red Day”
“Had a great day stuffing t-shirts… This project was a great choice for us!” Carol Vigorito of Keller Williams Realty and her company’s team of realtors in Queens, New York made and donated 121 “Stuffed Shirts” at their annual “Red Day” giving event on May 14th.
The t-shirts, which were filled with basic hygiene items like shampoo, soap and toothpaste, were delivered to Queens Community House, where they’ll be given out to families struggling with poverty.
Thank You Green Eileen!
Here at Family-to-Family we’re packing up MORE beautiful clothing donated to us by the Eileen Fisher Recycling program through Green Eileen, the branch of Eileen Fisher dedicated to recycling the designer’ clothes. So far we’ve passed along the clothing to 11 nonprofit organizations that serve women and teens in need. Green Eileen has donated almost 9,000 items of women’s clothing to Family-to-Family since mid-March!
