As the air turns chilly and we turn our thoughts to the joys of the upcoming holiday season, the Board and staff of White Pony Express have joined together our minds and hearts in deep reflection on who we are, the impact we’ve been privileged to share with thousands of people, and what we must do to build a stable financial and organizational structure for our future.
It’s hard to remember that just a few short years ago we were a small start-up, an all-volunteer organization delivering less than 1,000 pounds of food per day in our personal cars. At our first Mobile Boutique we wondered if even 300 people would join us to receive beautiful clothing, toys and books!
Your financial support and encouragement over the last 6 years has helped provide the resources needed to mature into an organization that today delivers – with love - almost
7,000 pounds of fresh
, nutritious food
10 Contra Costa public schools
where children and their families are hungry.
The Cold Weather Clothing program now delivers
10,000 items of life-saving clothing
to our neighbors who live without shelter, and we give away 10,000 items of clothing, toys and books
every month to people in need in almost every zip code of the county
Further, White Pony Express supports 17 employees and their families with meaningful employment and manages a fleet of 10 large refrigerated trucks and two large distribution centers. Today’s White Pony Express is a mature, impactful organization woven into the fabric of life in our region.
Now, we must build a stronger foundation to insure that White Pony Express is sustainable for many years to come. This season, as you plan your year-end financial giving, consider the many ways you can directly impact thousands of people each day by making an especially generous donation to
White Pony Express. After all, a generous financial gift given with love really is
“All of us Taking Care of All of Us”
