Hope Builders are an elite group of donors who believe investing in people who are homeless is an investment in all of us. Hope Builders are Champions of Hope and are Champions of Food and Shelter. Hope Builders give $5,000 or more to Food and Shelter so that we may continue to provide life-saving and life-changing services to the women, children and men of our community. As we expand our housing and feed more people than ever before, we need hope more than ever before. Please consider becoming a Champion of Hope. With hope, all things are possible.
Food and Shelter services the needs of more than 40 Veterans who have needs that the VA cannot help. cRc is proud to assist these American Veterans who are presently down on their luck.
July 2019 reprinted in part from the Norman Transcript:
Norman's classic car club is "hitting the gas" on preparations for their classic car show benefiting Food and Shelter Inc. The Canadian River Cruisers is holding its eighth annual Food and Shelter Car Show at Andrews Park, 201 W. Daws St.
"We're trying to build it into something for everybody to come and enjoy the cars," Saunders said. He hopes the car show will raise $5,000, so Canadian River Cruisers can earn Food and Shelter's coveted 'Hope Builders' top-donor title for a second year."We were really proud we made that list in 2018, and I hope we duplicate that in 2019," Saunders said.
April Heiple, Food and Shelter Inc. executive director, said the money raised at the car show will go toward feeding people who otherwise wouldn't eat and housing people who don't have homes.
"We know [the money raised] will be put to good use for people who really need it," Saunders said. "[Food and Shelter Inc.] is among the best I've ever seen in terms of what they do, how they do it and the impact they have on the community."
Heiple said so far in 2019, Food and Shelter Inc. has provided 90,000 meals to more than 3,600 people.
"With the help of the car club and the people that show up to support the car club, we're able to do amazing work in this community," Heiple said. "We want to make sure people have food to eat and a group of people to support them and their families."
SIDE NOTE: We donated almost $10,000 to food and Shelter in 2019........
