Being a nonprofit that strives to use all of our available on direct programming, we tend to be a bit thrifty and a big fan of donations.  We’re happy to supply you with a tax form so you can write off the donation on your taxes.

Each donation allows us to spend more time with our programming and less time trying to chase money to pay for things.  Your donation makes an incredible impact on the Stark County, Ohio community.  

We are grateful for your support!

Single Donation

Although we like to think that enough goodwill will eventually make the world go ‘round, The raw truth is that in order to keep helping the community, money is still necessary.

We appreciate every dollar that you can share with us.

Each donation is wisely used to further our community programs.  Every little bit you can give helps us spend more time helping others.

    Monthly Support

    One of the most generous things you can do is show that you want to tackle the causes of hunger is by making a monthly donation to a program of your choosing. 100% of the funds given will be used to support our programming.  Only have $10 per month to spare? We welcome it! If each supporter gave at least $10 per month, we wouldn’t have any budget issues to worry about and be able to focus 100% on impactful programming!

    (Of course, if you can afford more we would appreciate that too!)
