BENEFITING: OCONEE AREA RESOURCE COUNCIL INC
Oconee Area Resource Council is a small nonprofit that collaborates with many organizations to fill gaps in services for our at risk kids. We coordinate over 300 community volunteers to run the Oconee Food for Kids, Summer Food for Kids and Oconee Mentor program. We rent an office space from a local bank. We store and distribute 115 bags of food each week for our Food for Kids Program, packed by our High School special needs class, in 2 small, cramped inadequately configured rooms on temporary loan. We have no space to extend our Mentor Program through the summer months. In an effort to house all our programs under one roof and eliminate our waiting list, we are launching a capital campaign to build a permanent home in Oconee County. Our goal is to raise $650,000 for a structure that includes office, storage, kitchen and classroom space. Your donation of $250 dollars will pay for one square foot of this much needed facility, however donations of any amount are welcome and greatly appreciated.
