Businesses can support Loaves & Fishes many ways. Through volunteering, hosting food drives, donating funding and more. Businesses looking for a way to donate in support of a specific need may find one of our business sponsorship opportunities a great way to make a difference for our neighbors in need.
Neighborhood Food Project
Support the personnel or marketing materials of this neighborhood food collection program. This program costs us $12,000 to $20,000 per year depending on what materials and supplies need replenishing.
Support our billboard that reaches out to potential clients to make them aware of the help we provide. The billboard costs about $850 per month.
We do a series of postal mailings each year at a cost of about $12,000 each. Our Annual Appeal, Newsletter and Residential Mailer help us to let potential clients know about Loaves & Fishes, solicit donations of food and funding and lets donors know their donations are being put to good use. We could do more mailings with greater sponsorship.

One of our former Board members established a beautiful garden and, unfortunately since her passing it hasn’t been the same. Can your company can take on this project and either pay for a contractor or provide an employee team to maintain the garden? Labor, plants, mulch could be included.
Currently we pay a contractor to mow/trim/blow our lawn. Can your company sponsor this cost or provide these services?
Periodically (we need some help this Spring), we need to repaint the walls. Can your business pay for a professional crew or provide their own employee team to accomplish this project?
Your donation can also help us replace some carpet tiles.
Exterior Power Washing / Repair / Painting
