MLK Jr Day of Service Volunteers Help Bell’s Next Door Program
Thanks to a grant from the PepsiCo Foundation (read more here), Bell’s NextDoor program is able to provide emergency food provisions to local families. NextDoor program participants receive case management support, which may include rental assistance and connections to other important resources, as they are navigating imminent eviction or existing homelessness.
The grant allows us to purchase food and gift cards to help program participants bridge the gap when they’re in a crisis situation. Food is assembled into individual meal kits to help individuals and families get by while other resources are put in place to return them to stable housing.
On Monday, January 15, 2024, volunteers from York’s Youth Development Center came out as part of a MLK, Jr. Day service project to help put together kits.
