We are so pleased to announce the appointment of long-time employee Mj Muldrow to the position of Director of Operations.

Mj started working with Community Kitchen, Inc. seven years ago as a volunteer. She worked her way up through the ranks to her present position as Director of Operations. Mj has worn many different hats during her time at Community Kitchen, from serving as a volunteer in the kitchen and the front desk, to managing the clothing room, working as the kitchen assistant, managing our satellite location at St. Dominic’s, to serving as the Administrative Coordinator, Office Manager, and now as the Director of Operations.

Clearly, Mj knows Community Kitchen inside and out and is committed to ensuring Community Kitchen operates at its best potential. Mj says “I am excited about this new role I have been given and can’t wait to see what’s next. Please stop in to grab breakfast or lunch, or just say hi!

Stock Donations; new ways to give to the Community Kitchen.

By | Uncategorized

Donation of Stock blurb The Community Kitchen, Inc. Fund was established at The Columbus Foundation earlier this year.  The Fund makes it easy for donors to give a gift of appreciated securities (such as stock, bonds, and mutual funds).

Appreciated securities held long term often provide important tax advantages, as their full market value is generally deductible as a charitable contribution up to thirty percent of the donor’s adjusted gross income. Like gifts of cash, deduction amounts that exceed the limit can be carried forward for up to five additional years. 

This is a great way to support our work.

Please contact Steven Moore at Columbus Foundation if you would like to learn more about donating securities to support our programs and the work that we do.   Steven can be reached at 614-251-4000 or via email at smoore@columbusfoundation.org.
