Since 1968, The Franciscan Center has reached out to community members experiencing personal and financial hardship through emergency-assistance services, and in the 2009–2010 fiscal year, the outreach agency assisted more than 10,000 clients in need of emergency and support services. The center's programs currently include a lunch program, food pantry, HIV/AIDS outreach program, and Technology Resource Center.
The Franciscan Center's lunch program has served food for more than four decades and is open to all members of the community, with a special focus on those experiencing homelessness, poverty, or mental illness. Partnerships with local farmers markets fortify the center's lunches with seasonal organic vegetables. Hot, protein-infused main courses ensure nutritious balance to sustain clients. The lunch program currently serves 6,000 meals each month.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help The Franciscan Center provide nutritious meals to the community. If G-Team members raise $500, then The Franciscan Center can provide 250 warm lunches to its clients. Each additional $10 raised will provide five more meals.
Unlike traditional Groupon deals, G-Team campaigns typically don't offer you a "discount" or "savings." So "buyer" beware—when you click "Buy" to donate your time or money to a worthwhile G-Team cause, the only discount you may receive is 100 percent off free, priceless karma. Read more about G-Team.
