Remember Good United blog we were utilizing is closing down in January 2018 and it all reverts to this blog.
This year was hard for us. We had 90% loss in revenue, we had an 95% increase in in kind food and supplies donated to us. We lost our facility so we are only working online with our Veteran clients. We’ve had to rearrange our programs to accommodate this. We had a slight increase in pet clients and Veteran clients. 2018 can only get better! We hope to partner up with our VP’s in obtaining property and a facility. Our hope is we raise enough with the 5K , our goal is $25,000, to add to their contribution.
