The smell of popcorn and homemade cookies has permeated my office each day since Monday. It’s day three of the Bite Back Box Fest. During the week, you can drop off your Bite Back boxes full of change to our offices at 3100 N. Meridian and we’ll use your change to help those in need in our community. For every 5th box, we’ll give a $20 gift card. Snap! It’s a reward just for doing a good deed!

January is such a dismal month – a let down after all the excitement of Christmas. Around here, we don’t let the weather or time of year keep us down. There are always needs facing us and helping to meet the needs of those who come to us for assistance is what we do best. But we also need YOUR help!

7,000+ meals are served each month at our shelter for women and children. That’s just one of the many ways we serve people and that alone requires a great deal of support. It may seem to you that all that can fit in that box is some measly spare change…but EVERY little bit helps! Your one box…added to his one box….put with her one box. You see how that works?! Your small change really can add up to some BIG change!

So what are you waiting for? Bring your Bite Back Box full of change to 3100 N. Meridian – 8am to 6pm through Friday. Yes, we’re staying open late for this! But wait – it gets better! At the end of the day on Friday, the person whose box (or boxes) has the most money..will receive a $200 Walmart giftcard!!!

Can’t make it here in person? No problem! Turn your change in through our Homelessness Bites cause page. For questions or more information, contact Crissy Testa at (317)224-1017.
