The holidays are definitely in full swing and we’re only about 3 weeks away from Christmas. With the season comes lots of gifts, parties, time with family and big meals with those close to us, but not everyone may have the ability to spend all the money it takes to throw those parties or have that big meal with family on Christmas Day. That is where the GIFT of charity comes in to play.
The Holiday Inn St. Pete Clearwater’s Director of Sales Lydia Eyles, has teamed up once again with The Kind Mouse Productions for their annual Holiday Office Food Drive, running from December 1-15. Participation and donating is easy! Just come by our hotel, located at 3535 Ulmerton Road in Clearwater and drop off your non-perishable food items into the bins provided to us by The Kind Mouse. The bins will be collected on December 15, so if you are in the area and wish to help families and children in need, please stop by.
About The Kind Mouse and How They Make an Impact on the Community
The mission of The Kind Mouse is to assist families in transition and their chronically hungry children. No hardworking individual should ever feel despair due to economic hardships beyond their control. Everyone has a right to feel safe and secure in their own homes, and no one should ever go hungry.
The charity helps people that have experienced career loss to restore their dignity and reestablish their lives. These are the unemployed long term career workers, displaced professionals and stalled entrepreneurs affected most by the economy. The Kind Mouse has served over 100 families confidentially while they are re-establishing themselves. Through their 90 day program, they offer food, housewares, pet food and career coaching to qualified applicants.
Through their “Mouse Nibbles” program, they deliver to the schools non-perishable foods in backpacks each and every week. The children receive one Mouse Nibbles bag each weekend of the year with an additional bag for Thanksgiving and Spring break and two Mouse Nibbles Bags over the Christmas vacation. We also send home Christmas gifts (small goodies). During the 2014 summer school bridge, The Kind Mouse fed 400 children each weekend. In addition to food, they also provide school supplies twice a year to the students.
