When Kelly Geisler, the founder of Cultivate Goodness Foundation, found out about our commitment to serving the community, she reached out and asked if we would like to donate and help assemble hygiene kits at their Grand Opening event. These kits will be donated to the Midwest Food Bank, where they will be provided to the homeless, veterans and military.  Of course, we were more than happy to help, and thrilled that she asked!

Kelly just started this nonprofit organization in January 2020 after learning that there are so many good people in the community who are willing to help serve but don’t know where to start.  Kelly said “Most people are so busy and just can’t put together a project but would love to help out, whether it be by donating or coming and lending a hand.  Cultivate Goodness will do the legwork and find meaningful projects, organize events and gather people, we make it easy!”

The word must have spread, as there was quite a turn out of volunteers help with this event. With the help of several companies who donated items, and others who donated the money to purchase the additional items needed, their goal of 200 hygiene kits was not only met but exceeded! It’s so incredible to see what good things happen when people come and serve together. We truly have an amazing community of people willing to volunteer and serve, if just given the opportunity. Kelly did a wonderful job hosting this event, and truly made it successful!

Cultivate Goodness focuses on different organizations and ways to serve.  This helps others get to know about all the different service opportunities out there.  You can follow them on Facebook @cultivate-goodness, Instagram @cultivate_goodness and checkout their website at www.cultivate-goodness.org for upcoming events and ways to donate.

Thanks for inviting us Kelly!  It was an amazing experience and the energy of the people who were so eager to serve their community was truly inspiring.
