Lend a Hand; Open a Can

What is the injustice we are solving?
With the grant money, the WE LEAD Poverty Reduction Team would purchase multiple can openers to be dispersed throughout the Buckhannon community, whether through the Upshur County Parish House, or through direct distribution. Many people do not have access to can openers. This creates an issue because often people are unable to use the food given by food banks or Parish House donations because they cannot open the food given.

Hi Ammanda -- thanks for posting this project. It sounds like you've done a lot of deep research into the issue of poverty (and the services available) in Buckhannon! Sounds like you've found a really specific issue that makes it difficult for people in poverty to access services -- and I bet solving it will really help a lot of folks.

The next step for your project (so that we can help fund your work!) is to post a Compassionate Insight by Feb 28. You can do this from your project page.

Is there anything we can help with?
