Though some numbers may seem small, keep these two things in mind: first, with your help, we fully intend on solving problems of chronic poverty and homelessness. That being said, we hope and expect the numbers to continue to lessen. Second, many of your donated items meet the needs of people who have entered our Partnership Initiative. These folks earn those items (food, hygiene box, etc.) which are then counted as “Earned It’s.”
