Our Volunteers The Lifeblood Of Our Organization
In 2013, over 59 volunteers donated extrodinary 7700 hours
serving those in need, packing food boxes, delivering food,
assisting people applying for food stamps, medical and Social
Security, clothing, transportation to doctors, preparing meals,
house cleaning, firewood, snow shoveling, auto repair, and special
events and activities throughout the year!
Whew! That is an astonding accomplishment for just a handful of
people from all walks of life, ages 12 to 90!
We could not provide the services we do for the 200 - 500 people who
come to us for services without the help of our dedicated and talented
volunteers. Thank You!!!
Statement From The President
Let's be honest, it takes more than food to end hunger and poverty. Over the years, it has become even more obvious that not just a food bank is needed
to help the disadvantaged, but that a multitude of direct-services and programs are needed to be operated simultaneously. As our organization strives to
meet the many diverse issues that affect our community, provide better solutions, and empower the impoverished to move up from poverty and hunger,
it has become a major goal of EVCSFB that no one is alone out in this world. We strive to fulfill our mission by presenting opportunities to give time, skills,
and talents to help meet the needs of the working poor, elderly, children and families in and beyond our immediate community.
Our organization has gone from 4 - 6 programs to over 30 direct-services that provide for the elderly, children, homeless and low-income families and
individuals. In 2007 we served 1500 people food, in 2013, that number increased to over 5600, serving a total of over 78,000 pounds. Our direct-services
that give people the ability to be self-sustaining and do positive changes in people's lives, served over 2300 last year.
As we look forward towards our 28th year, we are taking steps to equip ourselves, our donors, those we serve, and our community to weather the
economic storm and its aftermath. We have seen the economic downturn create an immensely increase in requests for food and services. The growing
hardships of families who once donated food, are now coming to our food bank for services. No one knows when this economic downturn or government
cut-backs will end.
Your devoted and tireless support has strengthened our determination in our commitment to serve those in need. Through tumultuous times these
last few years - facing setbacks and many obstacles, when hope was almost lost - you have came through.
To continue to provide a diversity of programs and meet the ongoing increase demand for food, as more and more families are faced with mounting
hardships, we must ask once again for your support in purchasing a building. By owning our own building we can expand our programs, extend our hours
and days of service, fortify our reach to create positive changes for those in need to move toward self-sufficiency. Together, with your support we will create
solutions to eliminate hunger, poverty and homelessness.
Please help us help those we serve. Please give to our Capital Campaign 'Mission: POSSIBLE' so we can continue to be a voice in the community for those
who are alone, illiterate, hungry, destitute and homeless.
A Sincere Thank You,
John Segle - President
