Since our beginning in 2012, The Kind Mouse has continued to serve more children and families in need each year. We are proud of all that our volunteers achieve, particularly our Mice in Training and Mice Interns. In 2018, volunteers donated 13,275 hours of time, valued at about $320,460. They distributed 76,304 pounds of food. Amazing! But in 2019 our volunteers, with more hours, increased the pounds of food donated by 61% to 123,000 pounds! And they delivered 1,971 emergency meals to homeless children within the Pinellas County School System. Every meal and every pound of food distributed to a hungry child is critical.
