CO-SPONSOR A LUNCH
SOUP KITCHEN EXPANDS SPONSORSHIP PROGRAM
The Soup Kitchen In Provincetown (SKIP) will be introducing changes to its long-running “Sponsor a Lunch” program. It began in 2015 as a way to help cover food costs alone—then estimated at $250 per day. SKIP is now distributing 165 meals per day versus fewer than 100 when the sponsorships were launched. Adding to its regular operating costs is the expense of packaging meals. (COVID-19 restrictions have necessitated outdoor food distribution.) To help cover these new expenses, SKIP will shift to two daily lunch sponsors—still at $250 each—effective January 1, 2021. Thank you for your understanding and continued support.
For just $250, you can co-sponsor one day’s lunch for over 150 people! You can use Paypal or donate by mail. Please indicate how your donation is to be listed and both your address and honoree’s address if notification is required. Your name, organization, or someone you choose to honor will appear as the sponsor on our menu board for the day.
Each weekday, SKIP volunteers prepare over 125 meals including seconds and “to-go” meals using generous donations of food from restaurants, businesses and individuals, as well as the Greater Boston Food Bank. Food donations are accepted in person Monday through Friday at 20 Shank Painter Road from November to April between 12:30 pm and 2:00 pm or by appointment.
"IN HONOR OF" GIFTS
In honor of your wedding, birthday, or other special occasion, consider designating SKIP as your charity of choice in lieu of gifts. You can use Paypal or donate by mail. Please indicate how your donation is to be listed and both your address and honoree’s address if notification is required. Your guests can donate online here, or by sending a check to SKIP.
Donating stocks is another way you can help SKIP! Giving appreciated stock is a much more effective donation method in terms of tax savings. With a charitable gift of appreciated securities held long-term, the donation you make and the deduction you get are greater than they would be if you were to sell the shares and donate the cash proceeds instead. That is because when you donate shares, you avoid paying the capital gains tax.
To learn more about donating stock to SKIP email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Donating by way of a trust, will, or bequest, is another way to support SKIP. A bequest is a gift made to charity in your will or trust. One significant benefit of making a gift by bequest is that it allows you to continue to use the property you will leave to charity during your life. Another benefit is that by making a bequest you are able to leave a lasting legacy.
