A Request of Funds for Supplies/Operating Expenses - 2016 Amount Funded: $3,500.00
The requested funds would help PEP meet the needs of the customers each month through the purchase of supplies they might need and also cover the costs of the on site expenses. It would also enable other resources in Stoughton to rely on PEP, as a resource to help those in need, and to feel confident that people would get the help needed after referrals are made to PEP. We currently get referrals from Dane Co. Human Service, schools, police, food pantries, START, churches, the Senior Center, the library, and word of mouth.
A little over 1 year ago, PEP moved to a more visible, downtown site where over the last year, we have seen an increase in our customers utilizing our services. The move to our current site has incurred more operating expenses (rent & insurance). An increase of customers (25-30 customers each time PEP is open) has created a need to purchase more products each month for our customers. We are seeing more "new" customers use the pantry, perhaps as a result of increased marketing about PEP by canvassing the community about the resource and from a recent open house at our newer location.

A Planned Open House & Replensihment of PEP Supplies - 2015 Amount Funded: $3,000.00
The purpose of holding a planned Open House is to bring awareness to the public about the services and operation of PEP-Stoughton. We feel it is important to make our organization well known and visible as necessities to the community exist with the goal of increased stabilization & quality of living for individuals & families. As a non-profit organization, we rely on donations & grants to aid PEP-Stoughton with products that are available on a more reliable basis. This enables people to better plan their budget & expenditures more wisely.
We would like to request funds to hold a planned Open House at our new PEP-Stoughton location, 343 E. Main, Stoughton. Additionally, we have expanded our operational hours to be open on the 2nd Saturday of each month from 9:00 a.m. - noon to accommodate those that work during the week. For the Open House, we would hold a "mock demonstration" of how PEP operates, have pamphlets and other PEP literature available to the public, and answer any questions. Another component of the project is to request funds to help cover the PEP expenses for personal essential products that we distribute to the public. Our expenses for the products cost $575 per month.
