When you become a monthly donor, you enter a special circle of donors whose steady commitment provides security for our programs. Monthly donors are our Champions for Change, and we are grateful for their support every day. Together, we can work towards the day that no man, woman or child in our community faces hunger, homelessness, or losses hope.
As a Champion for Change, you help families like Marie’s. Marie and her daughters come to the food pantry each month. Even though Marie has a full-time job, she doesn’t make enough to pay all her bills and make sure her family has enough nutritious food to eat. She likes coming to the St. Francis House Food Pantry because the client-choice model allows her family to pick out the groceries they know they will eat, like green beans for her daughter Jessica and pasta for Melanie.
Your generous donation makes this possible.
Monthly gifts add up to change lives in our community.
You can make an impact all year long when you become a monthly donor. As a Champion for Change, your monthly gifts ensure that the door is always open for those in need in our community.
- $25 a month provides food to a family in need
- $50 a month ensures that men and women at Brother Francis shelter have access to a warm & safe place to stay 365 days a year
- $100 a month helps provide supportive case management to an individual facing homelessness
