The Byron Saunders Foundation Mission
The Byron Saunders Foundation is a non-profit organization created with the mission of currently providing Thanksgiving meals for needy families in Central Ohio and surrounding counties. We count on the generosity of the community to help make this possible. Our ministry reflects God's unconditional love and embraces all people regardless of race, status or religion.
During the holiday months, the need for assistance to families tends to increase. It is with the community support through food and monetary donations and volunteer time that we were able to provide over 2,000 families a Thanksgiving meal in 2013.
“For I was hungry and you gave Me food...whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did it for me.”
- Matthew 25:35, 40
Considering holding your own Food Drive to benefit the One Meal At A Time project at your business, in your neighborhood, church, club or make it a family project. Print up flyers explaining your drive, or use our Food Drive Flyer.
Volunteers are needed to sort and box the food for families in November. Sign up through www.VolunteerMatch.org in late October or early November to ensure an opportunity to serve others in this way.
We rely on monetary donations to purchase local grocery store gift cards to enable the recipients of the Thanksgiving meals to purchase the meat or other entree of their choice. Please check our Donation Page for more information.
