Giving from the Heart

Can you imagine raising your children on the streets?  If The Kitchen, Inc. was not available to provide the many services it  offers, more children in our community would be sleeping on the streets.  Every donation, big or small, makes a difference.  Please complete this card and send it in with your pledge or gift.


Food Drive

This year, everyone is asked to bring canned food and/or non-perishable food items to place in our collection barrels at each of the bowling centers.  Your generous sharing over the past several years has resulted in    literally thousands of pounds of food and supplies for The Kitchen, Inc.  Take a minute, stop and think about what you had for dinner last night.  Now realize there are many less fortunate in our community who would have gone with nothing to eat last night had it not been for the outreach provided by The Kitchen, Inc.

Message from the Chairman

This January 17, 2016, will be our 21st annual Bowl-A-Thon to benefit The Kitchen, Inc. Our Goal this year is to raise $60,000 and with your sponsorship and our bowlers, we can make this year another huge success. Every penny, nickel, dime and dollar (yes, 100%) from the Bowl-A-Thon goes directly to The Kitchen, Inc. The Knights cover the operating costs to host and plan the event.

The Kitchen provides help and assistance to the many homeless and disadvantaged right here in our community. Everything from food to a warm, dry place to stay, and clothing to household      supplies. Each year the needs increase, and The Kitchen provides all of this at no cost to the        recipients.  So please share your blessings, get out and have some fun and let’s raise a lot of money so The Kitchen can continue to provide these much needed services and improve the quality of life and end homelessness for many in our community.

May God Bless You!
