Mission Statement Coldwater builds friendships that foster hope in our community while providing food and clothing for those in need.
Background Statement
In 2005, Neighbors for Neighbors began as a response for victims of the Gulf Coast Hurricanes. That organization evolved into Coldwater and shifted its emphasis to meeting the needs of low-income people in and around Eastern Jackson County. 
In 2008, Coldwater began Friends Day Food Pantry & Clothes Closet, which grew rapidly and now serves an average of 80 to 100 families each Friends Day two Saturdays a month. The food pantry also is open by appointment during the week. In 2017, Coldwater added a dairy distribution program that provides milk, yogurt, and cottage cheese through the pantry.
On Friends Day Saturdays, Coldwater also delivers groceries to homebound seniors, serves a hot lunch, hosts a variety of health screenings throughout the year, and distributes school supplies in the fall. The organization also organizes a Christmas Adoption program for children. On the last Friends Day each year, Coldwater distributes the gifts and provides a wrapping station, invites Santa Claus to visit with the kids, and provides craft stations.  
The No Hungry Kids! program was originally added to address the need for chronically hungry elementary children to have food on the weekends. Shortly after the program was started, Coldwater partnered with Harvesters for the BackSnack program. Harvesters delivers pallets of prepackaged bags of food for the children to Coldwater, which are then processed and delivered to Lee's Summit elementary schools and the district's alternative high school by Coldwater volunteers. Coldwater packs its own backpacks for preschool children at the School District's Great Beginnings Early Education Center and HeadStart schools. Coldwater also provides supplemental food for the three Lee's Summit middle school and three high school food pantries.
In the summer, Coldwater volunteers prepare and deliver healthy sack lunches to children in two low-income Lee's Summit neighborhoods Monday through Friday for 10 weeks. Volunteers take bins of books for the children. Some activities are provided as well, including weekly visits by the Reading Rocket mobile library and the school district mobile library at both locations.
On Tuesday nights in June and July, groups of Coldwater volunteers go into the same two communities to host BBQs for the neighborhood families. Coldwater provides the grills, food and games. 
In spring, Coldwater also co-sponsors League of Smiles, an affordable t-ball league for ages 4-7, with "C" You in the Major Leagues (Royals General Manager Dayton Moore's foundation). In summer, Coldwater sponsors Out4Others Missions Week, a program designed to train youth volunteers.
Impact Statement
  1. In 2018, Coldwater distributed more than 65,000 pounds of food through its Food Pantry and Senior Mobile Pantry and more than 17,000 items through its Clothes Closet.
  2. Last year, through its Hot Meal program, at each of the two Food Pantries every month, Coldwater served more than 150 individuals a nutritious meal complete with a protein, vegetable, and fruit as well as milk for the children.
  3. In summer 2018, Coldwater distributed more than 5,800 sack lunches Monday through Friday for 10 weeks to children in two low-income Lee’s Summit neighborhoods through its Summer Lunches program and hosted 18 BBQs on Tuesday evenings in June and July for families in two of those neighborhoods, serving approximately 240 people each week.
  4. During the 2018-19 school year, Coldwater distributed more than 6,000 weekend backpacks of food to chronically hungry children in the Lee’s Summit School District through a partnership with Harvesters’ BackSnacks and Coldwater’s own Food Pack program.
  5. In 2018, Coldwater organized Christmas gifts for 750 children through its Christmas Adoptions program.
  1. Raising funds for its own building, which will allow Coldwater to include more household and hygiene items in the Food Pantry, to add refrigeration for fresh produce and more dairy, and to provide space necessary to start a diaper distribution program.  
  2. Increase the number of chronically hungry students in the Lee's Summit School District served with weekend backpacks of food.
  3. Expand Friends Days with additional services such as adult computer classes, salon services, and tutoring.
Needs Statement
  1. Monthly donors to support Coldwater's new expanded $225,000 operating budget due to changes in its host church that will require Coldwater to seek other space arrangements. 
  2. Funds for a first phase 1,350 square foot Coldwater building in 2019, which will cost around $300,000. New Springs Community Church has leased Coldwater a little over 2 acres of land on its property for $1 a year for 99 years on which to build its facility.
  3. Funds for a second phase building will provide the remaining space needed for all of Coldwater's programs and will allow it to expand offerings through the Food Pantry to include more household and hygiene items, to add refrigeration for fresh produce and more dairy items, to provide space necessary to start a diaper distribution program, and to expand distribution space and storage for the Clothes Closet.
  4. Volunteer or funds to assist with grant writing.
  5. Funds to provide more weekend backpacks of food for chronically hungry children. 
  6. Volunteer to assist with marketing to potential donors.

Geographic Area Served Narrative Coldwater's No Hungry Kids! programs focus on the Lee's Summit and the Lee's Summit School District, but the Food Pantry & Clothes Closet serves a wider area including the Eastern Jackson County area. 
CEO/Executive Director/Board Chair Statement
Coldwater has developed a strong volunteer base with a pool of more than 1,000 serving each year through our many programs. Several of these volunteers have developed into strong, volunteer leaders for these programs. Currently, our budget only allows for 1.5 paid employees, so these volunteers give many hours of their free time to Coldwater and its mission.
Through the years, support has grown in the business community and in the public sector, including city administrators, members of the faith community and the school district. Despite its many fabulous volunteers, Coldwater really needs a permanent, part-time administrative assistant to handle such tasks as processing grant paperwork, submitting reports, and assisting those seeking food and clothing at Coldwater or bringing in donations. Coldwater's core teams all have strong leadership and continue to expand their programs' services to meet the needs of the community. An administrative assistant would be of great help to these leaders and provide the executive director with more time for grant writing, fundraising, donor development, strategic planning, and relationship building in the community.  
The Coldwater board, staff, and volunteers are continually making the community aware of Coldwater's needs in an effort to gain the funds necessary to better serve the community. Coldwater is constantly challenged to find more funding for its programs in an effort to expand them to meet needs as they arise.
Coldwater allows its volunteers to express their passions through a variety of programming and is always open to new possibilities that grow out of volunteers' passions and awareness of needs. Some individuals who have found support through Coldwater programs have later become part of volunteer teams in an effort to give back the friendship they received in their time of need.   
Coldwater is a funding and community partner with Harvesters to provide nutritional BackSnacks of weekend food to chronically hungry elementary and high school children in the Lee’s Summit school system. Coldwater also partners directly with the Lee's Summit School District Early Education Center and HeadStart schools to organize and pack backpacks of weekend food for preschoolers. In addition, Coldwater provides food support for the food pantries at the three Lee's Summit middle and high schools. 
During summer, Coldwater's No Hungry Kids! Summer Lunches provides sack lunches Monday through Friday for 10 weeks along with a mobile library and recreation in two of the lowest income neighborhoods in Lee's Summit.
Every Tuesday evening during June and July, Coldwater organizes Summer BBQs in these same two neighborhoods. Community groups, including churches, businesses, civic organizations, teachers, youth groups and individual families, volunteer to help host these each week.

Short-Term Success
Children who don’t go to school hungry have better attitudes, find it easier to be attentive and ultimately perform better academically. Harvesters' studies have shown that children who receive Harvesters' BackSnacks have better attendance, fewer tardies and higher self-esteem. They are healthier and happier than those who are consistently hungry. The 150 to 180 children who received weekend backpacks of food through Coldwater during the school year will not only have adequate meals for the weekend but will also receive academic and health benefits.
During the summer, when these children do not have a free school breakfast or lunch and backpacks of food for the weekend, Coldwater delivers a healthy lunch Monday through Friday. Unfortunately, this is the only meal of the day for some.  Coldwater hopes it can help these families make their food dollars go further in the summer by serving the children lunch each day and providing families with an evening meal once a week for two months.
Long-Term Success

The goal of No Hungry Kids! is to eventually serve all of the more than 600 chronically hungry children in Lee's Summit with backpacks of food every week during the school year, a healthy lunch Monday through Friday during the summer, and a healthy dinner on Tuesday nights in June and July. This will not only improve these children's way of life but also enhance their ability to learn and develop into healthy citizens of their community. Harvesters' research has shown that grades improve by 18% for students who receive weekend food packs, and they have 14% fewer absences. Schools report that discipline issues are cut in half. In addition, 34% of parents reported that their children's health improved and 33% said their self-esteem improved. These programs also help families stretch their budgets so that they can use their limited funds for other expenses. Through the relationships we build with the families touched by this program, Coldwater strives to give them the hope they need to pull themselves out of their struggles.


Program Success Monitored By
Harvesters evaluates the BackSnack program through parent, teacher and administrator surveys and shares the results with participating agencies. Coldwater's No Hungry Kids! leader, a former teacher and now substitute teacher, also discusses the Harvesters' BackSnack program and the preschool food pack program with the teachers, counselors and social workers at the schools to which we provide weekend food packs. She cannot interview the children or their families, but the teachers, counselors and social workers share success stories with her and discuss any needed changes.
Data collected from the previous year for the Summer Lunches program is evaluated every spring to determine necessary changes. Menus are reviewed to ensure nutritional value and their appeal to children. Other areas considered are distribution times, volunteer scheduling and purchasing procedures. Summer BBQs also are reviewed every year to evaluate such areas as nutritional value and weather-related safety procedures. 
Examples of Program Success
The need for the Harvesters' BackSnack program and its success is reflected in the children who receive them. A boy at one elementary school Coldwater serves asked a volunteer if she had any food for him because he didn’t have any at home. She was able to go to Coldwater’s food pantry and get food for the family. Months later, as she was carrying the Harvesters BackSnacks into the school, the same child was in the office. When he saw her coming in with the filled backpacks, he ran to her with a huge smile on his face and shared that he gets to have one of those backpacks each week.
Another volunteer delivering backpacks to the early childhood center had the opportunity to chat with one of the children who was very excited about getting a backpack each week. The school instructor and counselor explained what a difference the backpack of food had made for this particular child. Since getting the backpack, he was more attentive and participated in class.
Description Coldwater’s Food Pantry & Clothes Closet are open 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the second and fourth Saturdays January through October and first and third Saturdays in November & December. The Pantry distributes two to three bags of groceries to between 80 and 200 families at each Friends Day. They also receive a half gallon of milk, 3-4 yogurt cups, and a container of cottage cheese. The Clothes Closet distributes more than 1,000 items of clothing each Friends Day. These Saturdays also include the Senior Mobile Pantry, through which drivers deliver bags of groceries and companionship to senior citizens without transportation. 

On these Saturdays, Coldwater’s Friends Day Lunch Program provides an opportunity to build friendships by sharing a nutritional meal together. Coldwater received the Harvesters Circle of Hope Award for this on-site feeding program. Volunteers serve 150 to 250 meals each Friends Day.

Other services administered through Friends Day include Christmas Adoptions, school supply distribution, medical screenings, healthy food choice demonstrations, and the distribution of fruits and vegetables from community gardens.

Short-Term Success
Coldwater provides families/individuals with food and clothing assistance to meet their immediate needs in a friendly setting that develops relationships designed to foster hope.
Long-Term Success
Coldwater's long-term goal is for families/individuals in need to receive assistance in a caring environment that will help them find the hope to search out opportunities that will eventually prevent them from needing assistance. 
Program Success Monitored By
Coldwater has based programming and services on solicited information and one-on-one conversations with participants. Surveys are conducted every year to evaluate services provided on Friends Day Saturdays.
Examples of Program Success
The Clothing Closet started with a handful of moms sharing a few baskets of their own children's outgrown clothing with those in need. Now more than 50 volunteers manage the clothes closet, which contains thousands of articles of clothing that are hung on 26 racks, as well as shoes and bed linens. Other items are temporarily on hold at this time. In 2018, almost 18,000 clothing items were distributed through the Clothes Closet.
The Food Pantry started with minimal food donations distributed to those in need. Now Coldwater acquires food through Harvesters in addition to collecting food donations from the community. Two to three bags of groceries are distributed to between 80 and 200 families twice a month. In 2018, more than 65,000 pounds of food was distributed through the Food Pantry. Those served include many grandparents who have found themselves raising their grandchildren; those struggling with mental illness or disabilities; as well as those who have experienced unexpected situations such as illness, job loss, or income changes.
Coldwater's friendly atmosphere has helped those who come feel a part of the Coldwater family. Many have become volunteers and even in-kind donors.
The Out4Others Missions Week Program is designed to train youth to become longtime volunteers in their community. The two-week program includes a week of training for two different age groups -- fifth through sixth grade and seventh through eighth grade. During each week, the group discusses the importance of volunteering in their community and different volunteer opportunities available. Students also go to different locations in the community during the week to do hands-on projects.

Short-Term Success
The 40 to 50 students who have participated each year complete service projects that have included yard work at youth camps, retirement communities and individual homes; tornado clean up in another community; preparing and serving lunches for the Coldwater's Summer Lunches program; sorting food at a food bank and in Coldwater's food pantry; cleaning at a nonprofit thrift store; and providing entertainment for children in a women's shelter. Many have found a heart for serving for the first time, and some have even found a place(s) to continue to volunteer in the future. 
Long-Term Success
Coldwater's goal is to train volunteers that will eventually be the future adult volunteers at Coldwater and other community organizations.
Program Success Monitored By
Coldwater measures the success of this program through discussions with parents regarding their students who are involved and feedback from the students themselves. Throughout the week, the program director asks for input from the students regarding their experiences. 
Examples of Program Success
Most of the participants return to the program each year that they are eligible. Some students have returned after they have aged out of the program to help supervise the younger students and assist the director. Many of the former participants have continued to seek out volunteer opportunities at Coldwater and other organizations.
Every year parents share their appreciation for how the program positively affects their children and often call before dates are even posted each year to make sure Coldwater is continuing to offer this program.
Representatives from the facilities the group has visited have requested the group return year after year.
Over the past 10 years more than 500 students have provided hundreds of hours of work in their community, including bringing joy to small children forced to live in a battered women's shelter, cleaning up the grounds of a youth camp, serving lunches to chronically hungry children, and sorting food for distribution throughout the community. 
League of Smiles is a more affordable co-ed t-ball league for children ages 4-7. The program includes practices, games, a t-shirt, a trophy and snacks, and an end-of-season banquet.

Short-Term Success
By the end of each season, the children have had fun learning to play t-ball, just like other children their age, regardless of their families' incomes.
Long-Term Success
This Coldwater program offers a more affordable option for children ages 4-7 to participate in t-ball. This is designed so that these children can experience the same sporting opportunities as other children with more means. Living in poverty can make children feel set apart from their peers, especially as they grow older. Coldwater hopes to eliminate at least one of the many situations that can affect their self-esteem.
Program Success Monitored By
Coldwater monitors the success of this program by the number of children who participate each year, parent surveys given out at the end of the season, and discussions with parents whose children participate in the program.
Examples of Program Success
One year when a parent could not afford the program for her children but wanted to participate, a plea for assistance was put on Facebook and someone offered to cover the children's participation fee.
Students have come to Coldwater to volunteer as middle and high school students and proudly shared that they were part of the League of Smiles T-ball program when they were younger.  
Families return every year for as long as their kids are eligible and call each spring to confirm the program will continue. In 2018, the program had a record 106 children participate.
CEO Comments
Harvesters has identified more than 600 elementary students who are chronically hungry in Lee's Summit. Currently Lee's Summit organizations such as Coldwater serve only part of these students with Harvesters' BackSnacks (backpacks of food for the weekend). Coldwater's goal is to continuously strive to provide all of these chronically hungry children in Lee's Summit with food for the weekend through our No Hungry Kids! program. We constantly search for grants and other funding sources so that we can fulfill this goal.
We have found that the families who visit our Food Pantry & Clothes Closet are in need of food and clothing as well as hygiene and cleaning products. Unfortunately, our storage space is becoming an issue, and our board has always chosen to make food the priority with the available funds.
For years Coldwater has rented space from the church that founded it, but the church's circumstances have changed. Coldwater is going to have to move to another location by August 2019. Coldwater is currently in the process of raising funds to build a 10,000 square foot building on land leased from a church for $1 per year for 99 years. Coldwater is taking this opportunity to expand its food pantry and add space back to its clothes closet that was eliminated in 2017, so it can once again provide household items. This new building also will allow Coldwater to continue to grow its programs and services, including more refrigeration for fresh produce, an expanded dairy distribution program and the addition of a diaper program.
A building campaign is under way to raise an initial $300,000 to build the first phase 1,350 square foot building to house the food pantry and office. All other programs will operate out of the church that has leased the land to Coldwater until the second phase is complete.

CEO Comments
To better serve our community, Coldwater needs a part-time office administrator but does not currently have the funding for this position. Coldwater currently uses several volunteers to attempt to fulfill the needs in this area. As the organization grows, however, it has become apparent that some tasks need the consistency of one employee. This is part of Coldwater's three year strategic plan.
