Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Giving to the Nations is an organization devoted to the assembling of all those with giving hearts to advance the lives of others, by organizing the compassionate power in people’s lives locally and around the world to advance the common good.
Our first Racine community outreach through Giving To The Nations, Inc. is a Food Pantry. The Food Pantry will provide individuals and families in need with staple foods and hygiene products. Staple foods such as: canned vegetables, canned meats, bread, peanut butter, jelly, macaroni and cheese, pasta, pasta sauce, boxed meals, cereal, fresh fruits, fresh vegetables, fresh and frozen meats, butter, milk, cheese, eggs. Hygiene products such as: toothpaste, toothbrush, soap, shampoo, deodorant, hand/body lotion, diapers, baby wipes, band aids and ointments.
The Food Pantry is projected to be operational in or near downtown Racine the fourth quarter of 2017. We plan to collaborate with the Racine County Sheriff Chaplain’s Office, local churches and schools in the Racine area to identify and serve the individuals and families in need. We anticipate serving 300 families per week.Studies done in 2013 and 2014 labeled downtown Racine a "Food Desert". The USDA defined Food Deserts as: "parts of the country vapid of fresh fruit, vegetables, and other healthful whole foods, usually found in impoverished areas. This is largely due to a lack of grocery stores, farmers’ markets, and healthy food providers." The goal of our Food Pantry is to be one of those "healthy food providers," providing fresh produce, fresh and frozen meats and dairy.
