Charitable Giving: Olivet Neighborhood Mission

During the months of November and December, TrueNorth is proud to sponsor the Olivet Neighborhood Mission. We have some exciting things in store and it all benefits this great organization. We invite you to follow along as we share our efforts with you!

About the Olivet Neighborhood Mission

According to their website, "Olivet Neighborhood Mission is built on a foundation of service and dignity restoring hope to families and individuals in need by providing basic needs such as food, clothing and household items. The Mission also provides youth programs that encourage self-esteem, independence and community service." They aim to foster self-sufficiency and achieve long-term success through respect, compassion and community support.

How TrueNorth Plans to Help

  • TrueNorth started our fundraising efforts by hosting a building-wide bake sale last week, hosted by our Risk Management team. Throughout the month, we'll also be hosting a Thanksgiving food drive to help provide families in the Cedar Rapids community with a Thanksgiving meal. 
  • Our Casual for a Cause Committee will also be hosting a turkey shoot right here at our office headquarters!  For a $5 donation to the Olivet Neighborhood Mission, TrueNorth employees can take aim at paper turkeys and pumpkins with Nerf guns!  The person with the highest score will win a prize!
  • Stay posted - we'll share more details on what's planned for December! 
  • As always, you can count on seeing the TrueNorth team sporting denim the last Wednesday in November, as the office will be partaking in our "Casual for a Cause" day to help support the Olivet Neighborhood Mission.

How You Can Help:

  • Donate: For as little as $10, you can make a difference in the lives of disadvantaged families living in the local area. Ten dollars would provide three families with an emergency food box that would last them up to 2-3 days. A dollar donated and spent by this organization can go four times as far as a dollar spent at retail costs.

  • Volunteer: Give your time and talent. Volunteering is a significant way you can impact the Olivet Neighborhood Mission. Volunteer opportunities exist in most of their programs and services and provide you with multiple ways to engage with the organization.
