1st Annual “Hole in One for Hunger” Golf Outing

OUR MISSION: Feeding, clothing and supporting our neighbors with compassion and dignity

Dear Supporter,

COVID-19 has had a significant impact on all our lives. Many of our neighbor nonprofits have closed their doors during the pandemic but Bessie Green Community chose to stay open and expand our outreach.

Established in 1978 to feed the homeless, our founder would have never imagined the growing need for food, clothing and social services for the underserved population of Newark, NJ. Much has changed, including the scope of individuals and families we serve. People need help today more than ever.

Unable to stay open as a traditional soup kitchen, clothing barn and food pantry, our staff and volunteers have found creative ways to help our neighbors in need during the pandemic, this is what our month looks like currently:

  • 3,487 Grab and Go meals distributed
  • 5,632 Meals delivered to seniors and others quarantined
  • 5,810 Bags of food distributed
  • 560 Bags of clothing distributed
  • 20 Client referrals
  • 157 Cases of diapers distributed

Please help support our charity golf outing by becoming a sponsor. Our goal of $100,000 will help us feed, clothe and support 20,000 families in need.
