At the beginning of 2018, we stepped out in faith and hired four new full-time staff and added several children and families. We had to put the Que Rico fundraiser event on hold AND did not receive the $20,000 matching gift for education scholarships. Our monthly operating cost is $15,000 and our average monthly donations are around $8,000.
We are inviting you to take advantage of end-of-the-year and Christmas giving to help us meet our food cost for 2018 through this online Que Rico fundraising campaign. This year we will serve 21,403 meals!!
