We’re Nuts fundraiser is in support of Starting Right, Now (SRN) (www.startingrightnow.org). Our goal is to raise sufficient funds to meet the needs of homeless, unaccompanied youth in in the Tampa Bay area.
The purpose of this project is to raise money to purchase “Graduation Gift Packages” for the kids graduating from the “Starting Right, Now” program. Starting Right, Now is a new Non-Profit our Church has decided to partner with. Their purpose is to identify local high school students that are truly “Homeless”. These kids are actually living one night in one location, the next night in another, and sometimes, even sleeping on the streets. The kids are required to live in the facility at Starting Right, Now, have to attend school (their own school) every day, are taught the life skills they will need to have a good chance when they graduate from high school, and they must maintain their grades. They are then helped to get financial aid so they can attend tech school or college. The reason we have chosen to support this project is that our group, the Homeless in our Community Small Group Ministry, totally supports helping the Homeless in our Community. We, as well as our Pastor, are 100 % behind any group trying to help elevate the Homeless, especially kids.
To help raise funds to supplement this fundraiser, we are also partnering with “We’re Nuts” Pecan growers in Vienna Georgia to sell pecans to the local community. “We’re Nuts” www.werenuts.com encourages non profit groups to raise money for their causes by buying the Nuts wholesale and retailing them. We know you might not be around to purchase them to aid us, but, we encourage you to give them a chance to impress you as much as us.
Thank you for considering supporting this cause. Starting Right, Now really is doing an amazing job helping these kids.
