Food Pantries Can Use Help
Rising Prices Affect Us All ...
But some of us are affected more than others. If you are able -- and every dollar counts -- please make a donation to our Community Crisis Fund, which supports our local food pantries.

The Foundation provides gift cards to the pantries that they can distribute as needed to their clients. The cards can be used to purchase items that the pantries might not have on hand -- such as, perishables, baby products, and toiletries -- according to individual needs.

Plant Sale
Coming Soon

The Foundation is partnering with Ingleside Nurseries to offer discounts on Spring plants. Look for details soon.
LOVE Golf Cart Ornaments
We still have ornaments available
We'll have ornaments available at meetups and many events throughout the year until they are all gone. Or, you can reach out to us via email. Ornaments are $20 each, payable with cash or check only. They make great gifts.

Net proceeds from the sale of the ornaments will go into the Foundation's Community Crisis Fund to assist our local food pantries.
