Who we are:

We are Gray Mockingbird, Inc. A 501(c)3 Non-Profit organization that was formed on February 28th, 2013.

Our Mission Statement: "To teach sustainability and resiliency by example".

In the past, Gray Mockingbird picked up food for organizations from the Palm Beach Food Bank, Panera Bread and from the other organizations to redistribute. The charitable organizations that benefitted were The Way Cafe (@Calvary Methodist Church/ under the 501(c)3 of St Andrews Episcopal), Family Promise of South Palm Beach, Family Promise of North Central Palm Beach County, Maya Guatemalan Center, Farmworkers Council of the Palm Beaches, The Burrito Project, Phoenix House and the Goodwill Center for chronic Homelessness, Above the Sea Soup Kitchen on Wingfield in Lake Worth.

At present, Gray Mockingbird facilitates the pickup of surplus food which we receive from "The Food Pantry by Restoration Bridge International". Restoration Bridge distributes enough food each week to supply more than 20,000 people. 8,600 of those needing food are in Lake Worth. Gray Mockingbird, at the present time, delivers to Barton and South Grade Elementary schools in Lake Worth. 99% of the students are on a reduced or free lunch program. What this means is that out of all the students in one of the schools, 3 of the children were not eligible. We are thankful for our volunteers who help pick up and deliver on a weekly basis .

As an entertaining way to raise funds to keep our doors open, we facilitate 2 evenings a week of Bingo! We play on Thursdays and Saturdays at Palm Springs Pizza located at 3087 Forest Hill Blvd. It's on the NW corner of Forest Hill and Congress Ave, WPB. Games start at 6pm and are usually over by 8:30pm.

Thank you for your interest in supporting Gray Mockingbird and we look forward to supporting you.

Sincerely,
Brian Kirsch, Executive Director
