Mercy Hospice, Meals on Wheels, and Jefferson Economic Development Institute each received $2,000 of the most recent donation.
On Aug. 22, New 2 You donated $6,000 to three local non-profits, which brought their total to $162,200 since they opened. Mercy Hospice, Meals on Wheels, and Jefferson Economic Development Institute each received $2,000 of the most recent donation.
“Thank you New 2 You for being so awesome!,” said JEDI executive director Nancy Swift. “We continue to love and support your social enterprise and we are grateful for your support of our organization as well. This quarter's contribution will be used to support the Market Match program at the Mt. Shasta Farmers' Market. That program matches SNAP, WIC, and Senior Nutrition vouchers up to $15 per market day. This means low income shoppers buy more produce and farmers sell more produce. It is a win-win.”
“I don’t need to tell you what Hospice means to our community. You know. But here’s something you might not know: Hospice needs the support of our community,” said Eva Moll of Mercy Hospice Mt. Shasta. “Often, the reimbursement from Medicare, Medi-Cal and private insurance does not cover the cost of providing individualized care needs.”
Meals-on-Wheels donations will go to the home delivery program supporting at risk seniors in the four south county areas.
District Administrator Mike Rodriguez said New 2 You’s support “greatly assists and preserves the availability of our existing senior services.”
“We depend so-much on outside financial support and our seniors directly benefit from the generosity of our community partners,” said administrative assistant Cindy Smith.
New 2 You Thrift Store is like a boutique but with thrift store prices. The store donates clothing and collects food for people in need in Siskiyou County. They also donate clothes, walkers and canes to the hospital, and help several churches with the homeless and needy.
The store allows people to work for necessities they cannot afford and provide $50 worth of clothing and necessities for women working with the Siskiyou Domestic Violence Shelter Program.
A free box located outside is filled with clothes, blankets, and household items to anyone in need.
New 2 You also donates prizes to non profit groups for fundraising events and donates coats at the park for the annual Thanksgiving Dinner. They also donate clothing to the high school and the College of the Siskiyous theater department, and will provide $50 worth of necessities to anyone who has no insurance and loses a house in a fire.
New 2 You offers an opportunity for people to work off community service requirements as well, including juvenile delinquents.
Those who are interested in volunteering at New 2 You should call (530) 918-9570 for more information.
