Nick's Differently Awesome Outreach is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that runs Nick's Shaved Ice Paradise, a food truck selling shaved ice. Nick's currently employs young people who have developmental disabilities such as Down syndrome and autism. These young people could not find, or hold, a job and Nick's provides safe and meaningful jobs for them that pay better than minimum wage.
Nick's is only able to stay open for a little more than half the year due to the seasonal nature of selling shaved ice from a trailer. Expenses such as truck, trailer, and business insurance, storage of the trailer in a shop building, website fees, accounting fees, and licensing fees are paid year-round.
Our revenue is good but it is only generated during a 7-8 month period. As a result, Nick's operates at a deficit. The average yearly deficit is approximately $4,000.
This is the reason we are a non-profit organization. We need the generosity of donors/supporters to help us keep providing jobs for these deserving young people.
You can help Nick's by donating to the cause. Givebutter does not charge Nick's a fee so 100% of the money you donate makes its way to Nick's. The executive director/manager puts in over 50 hours of work each week and is an unpaid volunteer. All of the money donated goes directly to the mission of the nonprofit. Not many nonprofits can make that same claim.
Small amounts, large amounts; they are all so important to us and they all add up. A great amount of the money raised by Nick's has come from amounts of $20 or less. Your donation is so very important to us. Thank you for your help.
