Gentle Bottoms - Diaper assistance on November 28, 2018. Orlando, Fl.
The Struggle is Real
We started out walking the streets of Orlando, Fl (Orange Blossom Trail) to be more specific handing out Roses and Hygiene Products to the women in Human Trafficking. We identified a huge need of many living on the streets hungry and this included babies and children. We began to fill the need. We would go out every Friday and take food, clothing, diapers, roses, shoes and hygiene products. It became more then just us going out to meet the needs. We met up with others that led us to connect with assistance to truly make a difference here in the community.
We became partners with Second Harvest Food Bank as well as Central Florida Diaper Bank. In 2013 we became a 501c3 Non Profit. Today we hold the platinum level of transparency as well as Orlando’s Top Non Profits. Just this year alone we have fed with our Manna For Life Food Program 1728 Families which is Serving 6410 Total Households and 1754 are Children which totals 74,350 pounds of food given. We have been able to give 7167 Diapers with our Gentle Bottoms Diaper awareness and distribution program. We know there is so much more to do. We need partners that won’t to run along side of us to make it happen. This year we received a proclamation from our Mayor Teresa Jacobs for all the hard works dedication and efforts. Did I share with you we are mobile group.
We are a total of 6 people with a huge passion to give a hand up not just a hand out. We will see these people we assist step into self sufficiency. We work out of our very own homes and garages. We know that someone will be touched to help us achieve our actual brick and mortar (building) where we can create a hub to run different programs to help all that are in need. This is my giving story!
