Whenever I see a tv show/movie about a family that is struggling but really trying to work hard and better themselves I think to myself "if I knew this family in real life I would do everything I could to help them."
but how do you find such a family if you don't know anyone or know that your help would actually help them to improve their situation rather than being irresponsible with the extra help (funds)?
My company wants to do a promotion where we have people nominate families in need and we fill up their fridge. There would be an application and possibly references required.
Is there a better way to do this to make sure the recipients are truely needy and appreciative? We don't have the manpower to investigate each applicant
We already give a significant amount to local food banks, but want to do something that can make a big impact on deserving families and hopefully bypass applicants that are looking for an easy handout.
