Truman Charities Supports KIND
Kids In Need Distributors (KIND) is a Montgomery County-based charity that provides critical food supplies to children through local schools. Truman Charities is so excited to partner with KIND to raise funds for this important cause. On February 25, 2023, Tommy Joe’s in Bethesda, Maryland will host one of Truman Charities’ signature gatherings from 6-9:30. The event will feature a raffle and a live auction as well as food and open bar. Tickets can be purchased here.
Putting Food on the Table for Hungry Children
KIND was founded by Jeremy Lichtenstein, a local as well as one of the nation’s top real estate agents. He began on his own, buying groceries to drop off at an elementary school. Ten years later, KIND serves 27 schools, providing much-needed, non-perishable food to over 3,000 students through the help of over 150 volunteers and a fleet of 50 vehicles. KIND delivers the food to the schools where teachers provide students with essential food for the coming weekend.
Jeremy is truly excited to be partnering with Truman Charities for this event. “We have been able to reach so many children suffering from food insecurity, but we can do more. I’m looking forward to meeting with people who want to help and spreading the word about our work.” Check out the latest podcast episode to learn more.
Fun and Philanthropy in a Winning Combination
Truman Charities operates on the principle that people who want to be generous deserve a good time. This all-volunteer organization sponsors fund-raising events throughout the year, highlighting charities and giving them a much-needed infusion of donations. The organization pays for the entertainment, so 100% of the proceeds go directly to the featured charity. With events in local homes and venues, Truman Charities gives people a chance to get together for a good cause, secure in the knowledge that their contribution is going straight to the need.
A Legacy of Giving and Awareness
In addition to raising funds for organizations, Truman Charities makes a point to help people to learn more about the many ways that they can help in the community. In a recent video, we shared some of our successes as well as our approach. The signature events are only one piece of the puzzle since Truman Charities also has a podcast that invites charities to showcase their good work. With multiple shows a month, the podcast features charities as well as other information about philanthropy and community service of interest to their wide network of generous donors and volunteers.
We hope you’ll join us in supporting KIND at the upcoming event. If you want to get involved with Truman Charities or learn more about how to donate to one of our featured charities, sign up for our e-newsletter.
