It takes more than just food and volunteers to keep Christ’s Table running.
Executive Director Keely Warden knows that all too well. While Warden is thankful for the "great group of donors" that donate to Christ’s Table, she says she wants to reach out to the youth in our community and also try to get residents to commit to donating on a monthly basis.
"We’re just trying to promote that running this mission is more than just food and volunteers and we have to pay the electric bill and the gas bill and our mortgage payment and insurance and taxes just like everybody else," said Warden. "So we came up with a small coupon book that’s promoting monthly giving and just trying to communicate to people what it takes to run a business like this and how their $10 a month can help."
Warden’s goal is to get 100 people to commit to making a $10 monthly donation, which would equal $12,000 a year. "That would actually make our mortgage payment here at Christ’s Table. I think when people can put that out in front of themselves and say I am making a difference, $10 a month can make a difference."
