Someone once said that the greatest gift we are given is our imagination. That we don’t have to look very far to see that what is now proven, was once only imagined. It’s our imagination that sparked the creation of I Can for Kids, and with our eye firmly on our mission to end summer childhood hunger in our city, it’s our vision for a community where no child goes hungry that will help get us there.
We are excited to share our 2017 Impact Report with you. From the heartfelt story of a young girl named Abby whose imagination helped her ease the pain of hunger, to the firsthand testimonials of our program recipients, one thing shines through – that we couldn’t have done it without the commitment of our agency partners, donors, sponsors and volunteers. By working together, we reached more kids in more communities than ever before. Our goal was to provide 36,000 meals to hungry kids this summer; through collaboration and partnership we exceeded this target.
We hope you enjoy reviewing the report and take pride in knowing how you helped make a difference in thousands of young lives this summer. Like Abby, every hungry child has a story. Thank you for being part of ours.
