Since 1985, Eastside Ministries has provided food and clothing to our neighbors in need. In 2017, we experienced significant growth--over 22,000 our of Eastside neighbors served! We also grew as an organization, expanding our service area to include 76105 and raising the necessary funds to purchase a refrigerated truck. We'll be purchasing that truck this month, now that we've completed construction on our back courtyard fence project!
In 2018, we want to continue to improve our facility, including smaller projects like repairing baseboards that are coming lose inside the building, to larger projects like replacing the toilets and putting up an exterior sign to help with visibility. Our building has been our home since the very beginning. It is one of our greatest assets, and we want to be good stewards of it.
We also want to invest in our people--another great asset. Eastside Ministries could not serve as many families in need if it weren't for the dedicated staff and volunteers that work every day to make sure no Eastsider goes hungry if we can help it. In 2018, we want to improve volunteer stewardship with focused program building and training, and we want to offer our staff the best professional development to truly be a forward-thinking nonprofit, utliizing best practices for the field.
Your donation to Eastside Ministries makes a direct impact on the lives of our neighbors who need us. We thank you so much for your time and participation!
