Our food pantry wouldn’t be possible without our Spotlight Sponsors. Our November partner, Direct Energy, puts a whole new meaning on “spotlight”: their Reduce Your Use for Good grant is enabling us to replace our lighting and a freezer so that the pantry is a more welcoming place, can serve more people, and save a whole lot of money by being more energy efficient.
The pantry has experienced rapid growth, more than doubling in the last two years to serve more than 1,200 people each month. It only costs $5,000 per month to operate the pantry, from acquiring food to staffing to space, but we can only continue to meet that demand with the support of our corporate partners. If your company is interested in tax-deductible sponsorship opportunities, please contact Jon Hoffmann at jhoffmann [at] chscorp.org (subject: Spotlight%20Sponsorships) .
