“The thing is we’re a very small non-profit.” board president Steve Ader said.
Ader said one thing they've really started to participate in over the last few years is Giving Tuesday. He said it's a good way to help not just this organization, but others worldwide through the global fundraiser.
"It’s for all non-profits. It’s an excellent way to raise money at a very, very insignificant cost," Ader said.
For Ader, the money helps with many things – the most important being to help put food on the table for others in the community who may be in need.
“That really helps buy protein, bakery products. If you think about it, people give us canned goods and things like that, but I don’t get loaves of bread," Ader said.
He said at least $17,000 of their $25,000 goal was met on Tuesday. Ader said people can still participate in Giving Tuesday fundraising efforts through the end of December.
