Hello all. Thanks for helping out with donations with the last cause. I have just began a new campaign. This is a little tricky, so let me explain  See more

BENEFITING: The Little Pantry That Could

EVENT DATE: Apr 30, 2016

Eric Cox Humanitarian

THE STORY:

Hi to anyone reading this. My name is Eric Cox, and I have been running races since 2009. I began using the talents God has given me to help charities I support starting in 2010. My 18th race (11 [26.2 mile] marathons and 7 [13.1 mile] half marathons) will be in Nashville, TN April 30, 2016. This race is dedicated to a charity near and dear to my heart, The Little Pantry That Could in Nashville, TN. The organization has been serving the homeless and working poor community of Nashville, TN since 2010 after the historic flood wiped many into poverty. The charity opens it's doors every Saturday to give out free food to those in need. All dollars that come into the organization go toward aiding people. There are no paid staff or board members. I know this, because I serve on the board. The Little Pantry helps to feed close to 200 families a week. It takes right around $1,200.00 a month out of the organization to keep up with feeding so many in need. We do not have huge backers that give us money on a consistent basis. We work with a very modest income and stretch it to the penny. These fundraisers keep us moving forward in service for our sisters and brothers living on the streets, and it helps those struggling to make ends meet. You can find us at www. thelittlepantrythatcould.org ***The Little Pantry That Could is a 501(c)3 and donations are tax-deductible*** In short, our one goal is to serve our neighbors who are in need. Our shoppers’ needs are very real and whatever way we can help, we will. Food provisions--fresh fruits and vegetables, and a variety of shelf-stable goods to anyone in need is our primary mission. We strive to make a personal connection with each shopper, letting them know that they are cared for and that they are important to us. Our neighbors in need do not come to us from just one demographic—they come from all walks of life. Diverse paths and life circumstances have brought them to us. At this time, we serve 155-180 families each week. Some are homeless, some live in cars, abandoned buildings, shelters or less than adequate housing. Some are parents of small children, some are employed, some underemployed, some unemployed, some retired. Some live close by, some are travelers. Some are shy. Some are outgoing. Some visit the pantry every week, some only visit with us only once or twice. We keep the process of shopping very simple. We do not ask shoppers to qualify or prove their need. If a shopper claims to have a need, we help to fill it. No judgment—no questions.
