We Need You...
Community Link has grown by more than 60% since 2014. The next 5 years predicts an 80% growth in the families we serve with new housing developments, senior citizen communities, schools, etc. This year (2018) is an exciting year as we begin work on our building expansion plans and furthering our strategic plan to feed the families in our community. Below is a list of current and upcoming needs we have and a link to our sponsorship packet.
* Current Specific Opportunities (all sponsorship benefits apply)
Monthly donors to help keep our facility running. While we run Community Link on a very lean budget we still need help keeping things going. It costs us an average of $0.25 per pound of food to run our entire operation. Gas/maintenance for the trucks picking up all the donated food. The electric bill for the lights, coolers and freezers keeping the food fresh for our families. Trash bags, Ziploc bags, cleaning supplies, etc. to keep the facility safe and clean.
$15,000 to build a new concrete dock pad for our trucks to load and unload from (donor will get the Gold benefits package)
$13,000 to replace our warehouse doors where the volunteers hand out groceries to our families (donor will receive the Gold benefits package)
$25,000 for backpacks filled with school supplies for 1,500+ children at our Back 2 School Bash (donor will receive Platinum benefits package) – This opportunity is available for the 2019 event

sponsorship recognition! If you are interested in adding in-kind value to your cash sponsorship or
