ONE Spirit
July 11, 2013

Food, heat, school supplies...it's just the basics to most folks. Working with One Spirit makes me rethink my own priorities because those basics that so many take for granted are a blessing for some during hard times. For several years, I have sponsored a boy just younger than my own son; now, I also send food to a grandmother who is taking care of a household of youngsters. Right here, right now, in our own country, there is opportunity to help. One Spirit is a path to help me do that.

This organization provides good, decent food to those who need it most. They feed children who haven't eaten for days. They feed families that have special dietary needs, such as diabetes. And the food isn't commodity junk. Today's list of food for the month of July that we send out include 9 different kinds of fruits and veg, along with fresh proteins.

Overhead is low to non-existent in this organization. There are no CEOs taking huge salaries to do admin work here. Much of the organizing come via long-distance. The on-the-ground delivery of food and wood is done by community members for community members. It is an organization that is based on integrity, honesty, hard work, and dedication to the ideas of strong community and honor.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would buy them a truck for delivering even more food.
