Giving Tuesday

We’re all about the giveback in our kitchen.

Every year we have tons of organizations and groups approach us about donating to a fundraiser and every year we are blessed with being able to stand alongside so many. This year, in honor of Giving Tuesday, we wanted to share a few of the organizations we’ve given to.

Domestic Violence Network of Greater Indianapolis works to engage the community to end domestic violence through advocacy, education, and collaboration in the community at large. DVN leads our community in cultural change toward ending domestic violence once and for all. They work with the public to gather data, deliver better resources and engage with influences. Their work is focused squarely on creating a roadmap that enables them to do what they do best- lead the way, as we become an increasingly healthy community. For more information on what DVN offers the community, ways to get involved or to donate, please visit their website.

Indiana Blind Children’s Foundation mission is to invest in children with visual impairments so each child will thrive in school and daily life. IBCF is a philanthropic foundation that financially supports the unique work of the Indiana School for the Blind and Visually Impaired.

Johnson County Autism Support Group seeks to provide support to area families affected by autism. Originally the group met to provide support to families affected by autism and financially assist children in need of therapy. While the group continues to do these things, they have also expanded to include social events for families and funding for community programs. Check out their website for opportunities to volunteer or donate.

They also work in partnership with schools, detention centers, youth agencies, humane societies/shelters and more. Check out their website with more ways to get involved!

Purposeful Living Inc is here to serve the modern woman. The woman who looks like she has it all together but behind closed doors is she is hurting, searching, or lonely. PLinc is here to love, walk alongside and encourage women to be all that God created us to be: peaceful, joyful and authentic. Through empowerment events, coaching, workshops and growth groups, PLinc is transforming women, marriages, and families.

The Patachou Foundation works to feed wholesome meals to food insecure school children in our community and teach them to create healthy habits. They currently have a 2020 vision that they are dedicated to. They want to make a measured effect on hunger in our community by reaching 1000 individual students annually. They want to increase their volunteer base to 150 actively engaging and to expand their fundraising efforts. If you wish to volunteer or donate, please visit their website.
