We are so thankful for this generous contribution.  We have our food baskets(18-gallon plastic container) that we are going to be giving out Dec. 13 and 14th.  These tubs are filled with food to help support about 400 families during the Christmas break.  Because we have not be able to secure a donation of 18-gallon tubs we will use some of the money to help purchase these containers.  We like to put the food in a container that the family can continue to use at a later date.  We also need to have something sturdy so they can be stacked while we are waiting for the event to happen.  Most of the money will also be used to purchase food from the food bank.  Serving that many families we need a lot of food to fill the tubs.Truly an amazing gift from you all.  Can’t thank you enough.

“Brews for Blessing” is truly a blessing for clients of Cooperative Emergency Outreach (CEO).  The funds donated are used in CEO’s general fund that helps clients with emergencies such as: food, gasoline, rent, utilities, clothing, work boots, prescriptions.  “Brews for Blessing” has also added to a “Special Emergency Fund” that was originally created by individuals from Emmanuel Lutheran and donations from Emmanuel’s outreach funds.  This fund is used when a larger donation can help give a client financial stability.  An example would be paying rent and or utility deposits when a homeless client has a job and is moving into housing.CEO is very grateful for the help given to our neighbors. In the October 2018, CEO assisted 1130 individuals.  This was done by 243 volunteers that gave 607 hours.  There are NO paid workers at CEO so over 90% of our income goes out to help our neighbors.
