Our February Precision Cares Recipients are...GLAD MEALS! What an amazing job they do of supplying meals to our local homeless community. Thank you to all who volunteer to help those who desperately need this very tangible gift of food! We are a better community because of all you do!
The March Precision Cares recipient was the Women's Resource Center (WRC). Our "socially distanced" check presentation meant this $1,000 will be used to support their mission to protect, shelter, and empower people impacted by domestic and sexual violence. It costs $40 to provide one safe night of shelter for a guest at the WRC emergency shelter. We are honored to help with this good work in our community!
Our April Precision Cares recipient was Christ Church of TC - Food Pantry! This amazing group of individuals and local grocery stores work together to provide pantry resources three times a week. With food purchased for this program at .12/lb., our $1,000 will be used to purchase a whopping 8,333 lbs. of food. In May, this pantry served 500 individuals. Precision is honored to assist with this important cause.
Our May Precision Cares recipient was Safe Harbor. This organization received $1,000 to support their mission of preserving the physical health and spiritual welfare of adults experiencing homelessness in the five county area. This nonprofit is mostly volunteer-run as a seasonal overnight shelter with a primary goal to offer food, shelter, and hope. They averaged 75 guests per night during the winter of 2019/20. Over 1,700 volunteers worked at Safe Harbor this past season. Precision was very touched by the hearts for serve at Safe Harbor.
