Recipient: Charlie, the puppy
Erika Gonzalez and little puppy Charlie. Both won a shopping spree at Walmart, for anything they needed, with the help of our wonderful donors!
Erika is homeless, but found a job as a cook, and next month will rent a small apartment for herself and Charlie. With your donations, we were able to purchase clothes for her job start, toiletries, battery to provide electricity for her tent, bedding, toys, food, flea prevention meds and toys for Charlie. We are so grateful we could do this for Erika and Charlie!
Brittany Allen, a seventh grade teacher of this school, had a lot of great, creative ideas for her class, but no funds for supplies to entice the childrens' learning ability. So, she reached out and Kat's Kitchen stepped up and funded a lot of those much needed supplies, including kits and a terrarium for reptiles, so children enjoy her science class.
The year of 2019 had its hiccups, but despite it, Kat's Kitchen was able to fund 2 local schools with their needs, so children can continue learning without the worry of lacking materials and books. We helped many random people with their groceries, on a daily basis. We funded socks for the elderly and the homeless. We partnered with other organizations to fund meals for school children in India. We raised funds for blankets and other beddings for pets in shelters and vets. We funded another entrepreneur in Mozambique (Africa) who needed help picking up his financial pace, enabling him to support his family and save the business. We funded food, groceries, medicines, clothing, electricity and much more, also to recipients in Mozambique. This year, Kats Kitchen without Borders has joined the Crosby Chamber of Commerce. We want to make a stronger impact into our town. So, Please donate! We want to thank all of those who donated and made it possible for us to meet the peoples' needs. THANK YOU! MAY YOU HAVE A BLESSED SEASON, AND AN EVEN BETTER NEW YEAR!
Recipient: Brandon @ Atascocita TX
Brandon was homeless and very discouraged with life in general. Kat's kitchen funded his meals (5 meals a week), secured a job for him at Shogun Restaurant, where he gets the other meals for free, and earns a living, funded clothes, bedding, a bike for mobility, paid his cell phone bills throughout the year, helped him secure a place to stay, with decent roommates, restored his life and faith in humanity. we wish Brandon the best, he is no longer in need of our help.

Update Oct 09, 2019:This is Sebastiao Jose and family, who live in Mozambique, outside Maputo. They all work together making baskets, chairs, and many other items clients request. Katskitchen has funded their entire machinery, funds to operate for an entire year, materials needed to enable them to produce in large quantities to sell, as well as rent a store. They have now added several members of their family and are working as one. We love to see them flourish. Empowering young entrepreneurs is a big part of our mission!

Antoninha is a young woman who has a donuts and cake home business, to help pay for her bills of cell phone, electricity and sometimes food. She lives in Mozambique, in the small city of Quelimane. The bulk of her customers are students, during the school year. When school closes down, for its brakes, Antoninha struggles to make ends meet, because she is not able to purchase supplies needed to create cakes and sell to the few customers. Kats kitchen just donated an entire month of supplies to Antoninha, so she can not only make ends meet, but to enable her to start the new school year with enough supplies, so she can get her small business into gear. We will be posting some pictures soon.
Please donate if you can, so we continue to empower young women!
Abel is a 29-year old entrepreneur, in business for 8 years. His business imports female hair products from India and China. A brilliant business planner, who needed financial help due to some recent family illness. Kats Kitchen provided funding so he would not have to close his business, and could continue supporting his family.
Kats Kitchen has donated children's books for the Library and Teacher's room @ Bens Branch Elementary, NCISD in Porter, TX. It all started when Calla Gregg, a caring student teacher reached out to Newport residents for help with any children's books anyone could spare, for her students. We couldn't say no. So we asked her for a list of books she approved and needed. We provided them with a bunch of them. There are more to come. We intend to fulfill the list. Below are the pictures of the acceptance. Kudos to Calla Gregg as well as Stephani Sapp, the Librarian for working together, allowing Kats Kitchen to provide a stairway to imagination, creativity, happiness for the kids at Bens Branch elementary!
