Executive Director, Bob Wessels, has identified five areas for improvement at the South County location: remodel the existing outdated restrooms and bring them up to code, replace water damaged ceiling tiles, improve the flooring and entry to The Thrifty Hanger, and add a fresh coat of paint to the Help Center and thrift store.
Raised: $0
Goal: $75,000

Executive Director, Bob Wessels, has identified five areas for improvement at the South County location: remodel the existing outdated restrooms and bring them up to code, replace water damaged ceiling tiles, improve the flooring and entry to The Thrifty Hanger, and add a fresh coat of paint to the Help Center and thrift store.  Staff members have already donated paint and their skills to freshen some of the offices and hallways.  In addition, a long-time goal is to make the food pantry “client choice” so that clients will have greater dignity in their food choices and selections.  To facilitate this move, wider pantry doors, new wiring, and new refrigeration units need to be added to the pantry area.  With the help of area businesses, contractors, and labor unions who will donate a portion of their time, we can make all of this a reality for approximately $75,000.

Here’s how we broke this appeal down into smaller increments.

    Paint for Help Center and Thrift Store           $  5,000

    Replace water damaged ceiling tiles            $  5,000

    Remodel restrooms and bring up to code     $20,000

   Thrifty Hanger flooring                                       $10,000

    Redesign food pantry/client choice               $35,000

Will you please help us reach this goal?  Your donation will qualify for the Missouri Food Pantry Tax Credit allowing you to receive a tax benefit of 50% of your monetary donation.  Indicate your donation “for improvements” so that together we can make Feed My People Help Centers safe and comfortable.
