2020 has proven to be a year like no other. With economic implications growing daily, The Refreshed Home has decided to make Consults for a Cause a fixture to its business model.
Simply, every month, eight hours of consult fees will go directly to a designated 501 C3 charity. At the end of the consult, clients will be given the option of writing a check to the charity instead of to The Refreshed Home. Those who opt for the former
- Don’t pay sales tax due for consult services
- Receive the deduction
- Make the world a better place
October 2020’s beneficiary is Feeding Westchester. Known as the Food Bank of Westchester when it first opened its doors three decades ago, Feeding Westchester has both refined, and expanded as the years have passed.
Pre-COVID the numbers were staggering: roughly 20% of Westchester County residents, including 1 in 3 children were food insecure. Today, with so many out of work, and kids not getting subsidized meals at school it’s hard to imagine how families are coping.
Feeding Westchester puts fresh food and meals into the hands, backpacks and on the tables of Westchester County residents via:
- Food Rescue
- Communty events and outreach
- Securing Corporate Donations (they pay for transport only)
- Education on preventing waste and good nutrition
Consults for a Cause is a great reason to get started on home projects you’ve been thinking about. Want more info? Contact me directly. But if you’re like me: in a good place, grateful, and wanting to help, Feeding Westchester would love to hear from you.
