Join Besa at Columbus Underground's Best Bites for an afternoon filled with delicious treats and splendid community impact.

We're teaming with Gifts of Kindness to collect notes of kindness and encouragement from Best Bites participants. Once collected, these notes will be given to recipients of the Gifts of Kindness Fund, which provides life-changing grants for individuals and families who have experienced an unforeseen setback. Along with the grant, these notes will help brighten their day. 

 

About Best Bites

Columbus Underground’s Best Bites: Sweet Treats is a celebration of all things sugary and sweet in the city. Local dessert fans will get to taste their way through a wide variety of the city’s dessert makers and vote on their favorite of the afternoon. 

 

About Gifts of Kindness

Gifts of Kindness provides one-time, life-changing grants to lift up individuals and families who have experienced an unforeseen setback. The grants, typically between $500 and $3,000, help with costs that are unpredictable or that occur due to unexpected situations. Individuals must already be involved in a service or program of a partner nonprofit to apply for and receive a grant.

 

Gifts of Kindness Grant Examples

A 54-year-old woman raising her two grandsons was unable to work while undergoing treatment for cancer. Assistance from the Gifts of Kindness Fund enabled them to maintain their housing until she was able to return to work.

 

A pregnant single mom on unpaid maternity leave with a six-year-old son was given rental assistance through Gifts of Kindness because she had to use her savings to contest a utility account that was fraudulently opened in her name.

 

A man with cancer lost his employment during treatment. After he and his significant other depleted their savings, they were finding it difficult to make ends meet. He went through loan modification for his mortgage to decrease his monthly expenses and applied for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). A Gift of Kindness grant helped fill his income gap until he started receiving SSDI.

 

Let's eat delicious sweet treats and spread kindness!
