Partnering with Us
If your heart’s desire is to help the less fortunate,
there are several ways you can join us in doing just that.
Because we are a non-profit organization and often permit low-income
residents to reside at Cedarcroft, financial assistance is always
beneficial. All financial gifts are tax deductible, and checks
can be made to Cedarcroft Home.
We also offer free toiletries to our residents, so donations of
these items are welcomed, as well.
Other much-needed items include bath towels, twin bed sheets and
pillowcases. When you have 136 men showering and changing
sheets, you can run through many linens in a week!
Aside from donations, our residents greatly enjoy personal visits,
cards and letters. Since many of them have little or no family
close by, they especially enjoy that personal touch.
When they hear their names called for mail, you can see their faces
light up with excitement!
Some church groups visit regularly to lead Bible studies; while we
whole-heartedly welcome those studies, there are many other things
we would love to offer the men, as well. Craft workshops,
classes in basic skills such as reading and writing, and exercise
groups, for example, would be a great way to help out. We have a few
residents who like to plant vegetables in the spring, so gardening
groups would be pleasurable, too. If you have a gentle pet, consider
bringing it by for a visit. Any area of interest you have
would most likely be interesting to our men, as well.
Most often, though, the men just like to have someone to talk to who
is “special” to them. That may mean going for a walk, taking a
trip to Wal-Mart or even having lunch together. Having a
friend is important to all mankind, but especially to those who are
lonely and without family.
If you would like to help support the
personal needs of our residents through shopping at Kroger, please go
and sign up to have a percentage of
your purchase donated!
Just use our NPO # MK097. Thank you!
