Our Mission

Bootstrap Ministry would love to have your help, whether it be as a volunteer or donor. Monetary donations are used for things not commonly donated and for purchasing food from Harry Chapin Food Bank (where $1 has the purchasing power of $6 worth of food).100% of cash donations are used for the ministry. We are a non-profit organization that is supported totally by volunteers

Hunger isn't seasonal, which is why our year-roundmeal and a prayer gets so much attention. Devote one afternoon a month to serving your neighbors and see first-hand how our community helps those

individuals and families in need. We have moved from Monday's to Saturday's 2-4 pm at Messiah Lutheran Church off Pine Island Rd.

Reach Out

Work with members in your community and make a difference in the lives of your homeless neighbors

Without our many donors both big and small we would not be able to continue

to reach out to our homeless, income deficient and food insecure neighbors.

We are very thankful and appreciate all the support that we've had through the years.
