There is no "typical" hungry person who comes to TASK. They include the homeless, the elderly struggling to make it on a fixed income, the mentally ill, the physically challenged, families with children, the working poor who come on their lunch break, and more recently increasing numbers of individuals unemployed for the first time in their lives. Included among the "newly needy" are individuals who had volunteered with us when times were better.
Please click here to view our Annual Report for FY 2010: http://www.trentonsoupkitchen.org/pdf/annual.pdf. It provides details on various services that we have provided to make clients’ lives a little more manageable. It also provides details on our expenses and funding sources (note that we rely very heavily on the public for support).
We are frugal stewards of all funds donated to us. Through our membership in the Mercer Street Friends Food Bank, we are able to leverage your donation. For every dollar you donate to TASK, we are able to purchase $10 worth of food from the food bank.
Your continued support is necessary if we are to be there for all who come to TASK because they are hungry. We know times are difficult. Please do what you can to help the truly needy among us. If you have already donated, thank you very much.
Wishing you and yours a healthy and happy New Year.
Dennis C. Micai
