O.P.S. Save & Support Our Pantry
Currently, our monthly donations are down 62%. What this means is that if we aren’t able to raise enough funds, the OPS and our pantry might have to either temporarily or permanently close down.
The food we give out costs us approximately $3,500 to purchase each month, and the vehicle maintenance plus transportation costs us around $1,500 per month. Factoring in all other expenses (utilities, mortgage, cleaning supplies, other supplies, etc.) the Pantry costs us about $8,000 to run each month.
Our Pantry is open 4x more frequently than the majority of all other pantries in the Central Texas area. Because of this, we’re able to provide food to an average of 2,500 families each month.
In 2022 this allowed us to feed 44,712 active duty soldiers and veterans, which is approximately 1/3 of the population of the city we’re based in. There is limited access to grocery stores in the area of Killeen that we’re located in, which means that for a lot of low-income families, we’re one of the only ways to have access to fresh produce, meats, and shelf-stable foods on a consistent basis.
DONATE TO KEEP OUR DOORS OPEN
Every dollar counts - even if it’s just a dollar. We need 1000 monthly donors to be able to maintain our costs to keep the nonprofit open, please consider joining our donor team to support our mission, and be proud of our outcomes, because together we are stronger and better
Thank you for your continued support,
