Update from our 2021 Impact Grant Winner, Curt’s Cafe
I just wanted to share once again the “Impact” your support has had. I had to rent a van yesterday for our experiential trip because we were using your van to move some donated products. But in renting I realized how much your support has – and will continue to – help us. Our bill for a one day rental was $ 186.99. We are now doing, because we have the van, 4 experiential trips in each cafe each month (2 weekday and 2 weekend for our Saturday only students). Just doing quick math that comes out to a savings of $17,951.04 a year! An additional add on is being able to deliver Catering orders, transport students to and from their Case Worker needs, trips to pick up product from a large vendor that doesn’t deliver…. and we are easily easily saving upward of $50,000 a year!!! But on top of that even – we look much more professional, which means we act much more professional and our stress is greatly diminished. I just don’t know how to thank you all enough for this gift!
