Our charity was inspired by the beloved Bobbie Stafford. She was an elementary school cook for many years and loved all the children she served.
Interested in helping our charity? You can donate as little as $5 or even set up monthly (recurring) donations. We can’t do what we do without the help of others!
BOBBIE’S STAFF IS A 501C3 THAT WAS FORMED WITH THE INTENT OF ELIMINATING FOOD INSECURITIES FOR MASON KIDS AND FAMILIES. TO THAT END, WE HAVE ESTABLISHED 2 “BOBBIE’S BLESSINGS BOXES” TO SERVE THE MASON COMMUNITY.
A BLESSINGS BOX IS A SMALL PANTRY THAT CAN BE ACCESSSED 24/7. AT ANY GIVEN TIME, YOU’LL FIND NON-PERISHABLE FOOD ITEMS, HYGIENE ITEMS, SOMETIMES CLOTHING ITEMS SUCH AS HATS AND GLOVES. THERE IS NO CHARGE TO TAKE THINGS FROM THE BOXES. THEY ARE THERE TO HELP FOLKS WHO NEED A HAND.
WE ENCOURAGE THOSE IN NEED TO TAKE WHAT THEY NEED. WE ALSO ENCOURAGE THOSE WHO ARE ABLE, TO LEAVE WHAT THEY CAN.
THE LUNA PIER BOX IS IN FRONT OF THE LUNA PIER BRANCH LIBRARY AT 4349 OAK ST.
THE ERIE BOX IS IN FRONT OF THE OLD ERIE STATION AT THE CORNER OF S. DIXIE HWY AND MANHATTAN ST.
Bobbie Stafford was a elementary school cook for many years. She went out of her way to make sure that every child was fed, no matter if they could pay or not. She would often pull a kid aside and give them some food at the beginning and the end of the school day if she thought they weren’t getting enough food at home Also, she provided countless articles of clothing, shoes, coats, etc. To children in need. She made a mark in the lives of so many kids that we can’t even begin to count them.
First and Foremost, Donations will be used to eliminate negative school lunch balances in the Mason Consolidated School District. Ultimately, we would love to see a situation where EVERY student is provided free breakfast and lunch.
Our charity will be run by the people who will benefit from it. Mason students and parents of Mason students will generate all donations.
All donations will be kept local until such a time that there are enough resources available to branch out.
