We have formed a 501(c)3 non-profit and tax exempt entity with the acronym of A.M.E.N.
The ministry aims till remain the same but the needs of military families continues to grow. We are providing an average of 250 food boxes a month and the need increases during the winter months to over 500 boxes. Each box weighs 40-50 lbs. and are valued at $50.00 - $60.00.
We intend to continue providing Thanksgiving dinners as pre-packaged full meals the families take home and prepare themselves. We also provide several hundred Christmas meals in addition to the regular food boxes.
Thanks to our relationship with Channel 8, Sunshine Division, and caring individuals, we are able to give hundreds of Christmas presents to families that might not otherwise have much under their Christmas tree.
The major reason we have formed the non-profit is because growing needs among veterans and active military members and families have made it very apparent that we must increase our financial base. There is so much more we could do with increased funding.
The most pressing need is for a small 3000 sq. ft. or more warehouse that would have a loading ramp and if possible a walk-in refrigerator and walk-in freezer. Used units are often available so they could be installed. A great many perishable items are available to us. But the only storage we have for them at this time are some home units in various locations.
The logistics and expense of storing food in multiple locations is much more difficult than with a single warehouse facility. At a single central location we would be able to pack and store food boxes as well as acquire and store perishables which we cannot at present store in quanity.
We are looking for those who would consider making A.M.E.N. a part of their tithing on a regular basis to enable the work to continue as well as grow. All donations are tax deductible and you will receive receipts monthly or annually as you prefer..
We pledge to our LORD and to each of you that every dollar and penny will be wisely spent. As you may know, all personnel serve un-paid so all donations go directly to serve and assist Military Families..
