Don't you hate car problems? We do, too! One of our trucks needs a new transmission. :( To raise the funds for this work we are having an impromptu electronics drive! We'll take all your old cell phones, computer towers, and electrical cords and recycle them for our "Get the Red Truck Fixed" fund. Can you help? We'll be here Wednesday until 4pm, Saturday 9am-noon, Monday 9am-4pm and Tuesday 9am-6pm to collect your unwanted electronics.
After Black Friday, Shop Local Saturday, and Cyber Monday, focus on the season of giving through Giving Tuesday. Take an UNselfie....turn that camera around and catch someone giving back, in an act of kindness, compassion in action! Share your UNselfie with us through Facebook or Twitter.
Start the giving season on December 3, 2013 by giving to In The Image. Just click on the DONATE NOW button to donate on Giving Tuesday! Help us wrap up 2013, and start 2014 continuing to give back to our community.
WOW!!! ONE MILLION Diapers!!!!
Remember the “diapers” phase? I sure do! When my kids were little, I had three kids in diapers for nearly two years! I was a collector of diaper coupons and scanned the paper each Sunday for who had the best diaper sale. They were still so expensive, and I remember celebrating when my twins graduated to “big girl panties.” That all came back to me when I joined the In The Image Team and saw box after box of diapers being delivered, all made possible by donations from generous supporters like you.
This was a blessing we shared with our clients each day, but it did not stop there! We picked up the phone and called some amazing community partners to see if they needed help with diapers. We had a huge response! We ended up delivering nearly 400,000 diapers to women’s centers, clinics, and church diaper banks!
Due to funding, we no longer get diaper shipments and the need is growing. We are asked daily for diapers, from families and agencies alike, and we struggle with the sad fact that we cannot help families with such an important need. It is SO difficult to say “no” to a mom of three, two in diapers, who struggles just to put food on the table.
Because of our ongoing community commitment, In The Image was recently given the amazing opportunity to become a regional diaper bank. Through this program, In The Image would be able to provide more than ONE MILLION diapers to those in need throughout our community annually…no coupons needed!
The cost to be a part of this program is $25,000 annually, that equates to less than $0.03 per diaper! Your generous donation will help us achieve our goal of becoming a regional diaper bank in 2014 and providing diapers to thousands of families each year. With your support, we will be able to continue to distribute diapers to our clients and so many more due to our community relationships.
This holiday season, you can help give the gift of diapers all year long with your donation toward our 2014 Regional Diaper Bank program fee. Please donate today by clicking on the DONATE NOW button or call (616)456-6150 by December 31, 2013.
Can we count on you help us meet our goal of $25,000 for the 2014 Regional Diaper Bank program fee with your gift today?
