  • Contact (321) 277-2067 to donate or help find resources.
  • We are the Meals on Wheels provider for Orange County and while we are currently fully staffed with volunteers, our most pressing need now is monetary and in-kind donations to our food pantry which serves senior citizens and the community at large.

  • The organization has experienced loss in income negatively affecting its operations. We have retained employees and programming while having fixed expenses for CityArts Orlando gallery. The greatest loss is for the artists we work with because they don't have the same opportunity to sell art providing income for their livelihood.
  • We are doing virtual events to keep artists connected to the community. We partnered with UCF on a virtual live performance called Creative Isolation, we have virtual galleries on our website and social media prompts and are asking artists to participate. In addition, one of our employees and her sister are donating time to make masks for those in need. We will do our first virtual 3rd Thursday Gallery event this month on zoom.

    • Video game system and sports equipment to keep teens in our residential programs busy and active (footballs, soccer balls, volleyballs, basketballs, corn hole, etc.)
    • Cleaning products: disinfectant wipes, bleach
    • Hand sanitizer
    • Hygiene supplies for youth clients
    • Easter meal for youth in our residential programs as kids cannot leave to be with their families.

  • IMPOWER serves approximately 10,000+ individuals and families each year through a continuum of mental health and child well-being services. Fortunately, our mental health services are fully operational as we were primarily using Telehealth before the virus began. As tensions rise across the community though, we are seeing a spike in referrals for counseling and psychiatric services. It is our residential programs, however, that are being the hardest hit at this point.
  • Both The Village (transitional housing for homeless youth ages 18-24) and The Grove (residential substance abuse treatment for teenagers) are on lock-down and kids/youth are unable to leave campus. At The Grove, teens are unable to see their families other than through Facetime and desperately seeking activities to keep active and their treatment focused. At The Village, more than 75% of our youth have lost employment and income. These young people have no families or support systems to turn to. With no end in sight, they are leaning on us for food and basic needs at this time.

Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando

  • Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando could use assistance in the form of cash donations to support our programs, donations of pet food for our community pet food pantry and volunteers interested in fostering animals.
  • Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando assists the community in the following ways:
  1. Animal Sheltering - Each year, more than 6,000 dogs and cats are turned into our shelters by people that can no longer care for them. Pet Alliance provides shelter, food, medical care and enrichment for the dogs and cats until they find their new home. With the current situation we anticipate seeing an increase in the number of animals turned in at our shelters in the coming months.
  2. Pet Owner Assistance - Pet Alliance provides free pet food for community members experiencing financial difficulties. We also partner with local senior service agencies to provide free food and veterinary care for low income senior citizens who own pets. We have already experienced an increase in the number of people contacting us for free food and anticipate that will continue to grow.
  3. Low Cost Veterinary Care - Pet Alliance provides veterinary care at our three clinics throughout central Florida. Services include low-cost wellness, vaccines, and spay neuter surgeries. Proper care and wellness of pets is important and providing low-cost care will help pet owners keep their pets healthy.
  • Pet Alliance recently completed a survey of pet owners in our community and learned that 30% of people think they will need free pet food in the coming months and about 50% of people anticipate needing low-cost wellness and vaccines. Financial support will allow us to provide these services as well as ensure our shelters have the resources needed to care for homeless pets. In kind donations of pet food will help community members facing job loss and other economic factors that would require them to need free food for their pet.
  • Contact (407) 351-7722 or go to Petallianceorlando.org to donate or for more information.

The Sharing Center

  • The Sharing Center is the largest food pantry in Seminole County. Launching "Operation Good Samaritan" from 4/6 – 5/1 with a goal of raising $120,000 to help our neighbors with food and financial support during this extreme time of need.

  • As we are in the midst of significant transition, we are shifting our programming needs to better serve kids. Here are the two major things happening at All-Stars that are requiring us to shift future funding/grant dollars to be able to serve the following immediate two needs:
    • Programming Services:
      • Training and utilizing our staff to fill the gaps and support the District's new virtual learning for students outside the classroom
      • Shifting to delivering our programs virtually--programs such as health/wellness, academic (STEM), workforce development training, and other enrichment programs
  • Family Resources:
    • Providing the necessary tools to our front-line staff to perform wellness checks and communicating resource information to families on a regular basis
    • Identifying the needs of our low-income families and making sure they have essential tools/resources at home (i.e. Internet service, food/groceries, school supplies, etc.)
    • How does your non-profit help those in need? Orlando After-School All-Stars provides comprehensive youth development programs that keep children safe and help them achieve in school and life
  • Orlando ASAS serves over 2,600 students and their families annually in our year-round programs. All programs are school based and tailored to supplement and enhance the existing efforts of each specific school site. Orlando ASAS's programming centers around the core components of academics, enrichment, athletics and service learning.
  • The organization utilizes an innovative and diversified year-round curriculum to engage youth so that they may develop the life-skills, maturity and confidence necessary to become responsible and productive citizens at home, school and in their community
  • Our greatest need is donations so we can continue to serve children and families in greatest need, including children and families in the foster care system. 
  • Many families we serve struggle financially and struggle to afford basic necessities, such as diapers, yet they are also struggling with mounting stress triggered by the public health crisis, increasing their need for critical mental health services. 
  • Additionally, financial contributions help provide 24/7 crisis support to children, families and adults. During this time of social isolation, families are under increased stress and pressure - and, without support - this could put children at a greater risk of experiencing abuse or neglect. Our crisis intervention and family support services help families manage this stress, keeping more kids safe.
  • We also ask our community to be the "eyes and ears" for kids right now to be on alert for children who may be experiencing abuse or neglect, and to be alert for individuals and families that may be under intense strain - please refer them to CHS for services and support.
  • During this unprecedented time, CHS provides crisis intervention and support to children, families and individuals who are experiencing additional stress and anxiety. As many families are experiencing unemployment, the strain of schooling children at home and/or having young children at the home 24/7, families are feeling overwhelmed. CHS provides mental health support through telehealth counseling, telehealth parenting support, and referrals to other community resources.
  • Additionally, CHS protects and cares for children in the foster care system, helping them find safety, stability and success -- all the more important during this unprecedented time.
  • We have had a great response for foster and volunteer support because so many are out of work. Our greatest need now is monetary donations.
  • Poodle and Pooch rescue is run 100% by volunteers. No one is paid. We do this work because we love dogs and we want to save lives. If that sounds like you, please consider joining the Poodle and Pooch team! There are lots of ways you can help! We specialize in the rescue, rehabilitation, socialization and re-homing of abandoned, neglected, and abused dogs. We provide safe foster homes and necessary veterinary care which often includes much more than vaccinations, spay/neuter and dentals.
  • Our vets perform all necessary diagnostics, procedures, and surgeries to make these dogs well, to repair the damage inflicted by others. Compassion, generosity, and love of our fellow creatures is what brings us all to dog rescue. We are dedicated to honoring and continually inspiring and nurturing these qualities in our volunteers, donors, and adopters. We appreciate each other and our donors for bringing the courage, joy, and humor that makes such challenging work possible.
  • Donations graciously accepted in preparation for the annual Thanksgiving Basket Brigade to support families in our community. Please consider donating now, or reaching out if you have questions. This will be the 23rd year of Basket Brigade Central Florida. :)
