Presently our Outreach Program Database lists 38 organizations. These organizations have been contacted and made aware of the Krewe’s mission and that we are actively looking to help "local individuals and families in dire need due to no fault of their own". These organizations have been a big help in bringing us individuals/families in need that we might not otherwise been aware of. All of the organization names and contacts are maintained on a spreadsheet in the Krewe’s Dropbox. Periodically, I re-connect with some of these organizations to remind them we are here keeping the lines of communication open. Due to COVID, many were closed or partially closed.. The newest additions to our database are Cancer Specialists of North Florida and Home Again St. Johns who I contacted to let them know of the Krewe’s mission and desire to help. If any Krewe member is aware of a person or family who might need our help and meets our criteria, please present them to Allen Cole or me to begin the process. There is an application on our website under “Charity” that needs to be completed for them to be considered. Also, if any Krewe member knows or has a connection to an organization that might be helpful with our finding potential recipients for our charity, please let me know so I may reach out to them and add them to our database. I feel with our War Chest recently filled we have the opportunity to be a big help. I can be contacted at Tony@Kreweofthe13.org

Hi Krewe….Let’s get the chain started! If all our 59 members call State Farm for a quote and they each ask 5 friends to request a quote If those 295 people, ask 4 friends to request a quote If those 1180 people, ask 3 friends to request a quote If those 3580 people, ask 2 friends to request a quote That is 7080 people plus the original 59 members for a total of 7139 If we earn $8/quote that has the potential of $57,112 !!!!! to the Krewe! SERIOUS BOOTY Now I realize that is an optimistic number, but I am using it to illustrate how easily and fast this could really add up This has the potential to be a great fundraiser….think of all the families in dire need we could help … while sitting home during this unsettled time. What say you Krewe???

Hi All Following up on my September post regarding the development of the K13 Outreach Program, to date I have been successful in reaching out to the 30+ organizations to inform them about the K13 and our giving criteria for prospective recipients of our financial assistance. I have created a database with the point(s) of contact, phone/email for these organizations. This database is posted in the Krewe's Dropbox file along with other Krewe documents. I will periodically reach back to these organizations and update the database as needed. It is my hope now that they are aware of us, they will present us with a family or individual they know of that is in need of our assistance. Many of these organizations were delighted to learn about the K13 and our Mission!
