The Kind Mouse Productions, Inc.
THE KIND MOUSE PRODUCTIONS, INC., fondly referred to as The Kind Mouse, helps fight food insecurity and chronic child hunger in Pinellas County. Their mission is “To assist families in transition and their chronically hungry children while developing the next generation of volunteers to carry on the mission of The Kind Mouse. No hardworking individual and their family should ever go hungry.” The Kind Mouse provides an essential community service by kindly and quietly serving food, kindness and hope to low- and no-income individuals and families who do not have the financial means to provide for the basic day-to-day needs of their children. Since 2012, The Kind Mouse has filled more than 300,000 hungry tummies in the following ways. Evelyn Nakelski is a valued and indispensable volunteer and supporter. With her wonderful smile and shining eyes, she has been a Godsend to The Kind Mouse. Evelyn is always cheerful and willing to lend a hand in so many different ways including public speaking, event planning, assisting the children’s outreach programs, packing food, delivering food, picking up food, organizing food drives, organizing the pantry, food ordering, running 50/50’s, selling tickets, making phone calls, working on the donor management system, taking photos, general back office work, serving on the Advisory Board, and assisting with social media and pantry organization. Because of Evelyn’s passion, commitment, hard work and generous heart, The Kind Mouse has distributed over 83,000 pounds of food to individuals and partner agencies. This equates to 70,000 meals valued at over $145,000. Additionally, Evelyn has helped generate over $10,000 in contributions by selling event chances and influencing donors to contribute to the cause. Evelyn has made this community a better place by enabling little children to go to bed with full tummies and easing the heavy hearts of their parents.
