New Partner Videos Demonstrates Impact
Trusted World provides the best resources at no cost to people and organizations working on someone else’s behalf, and true to its mission statement; Trusted World is releasing a series of videos showing how Trusted World Network partners are helping people. This week, Trusted Network News (TNN) focuses on police officers on patrol.
As members of the Trusted World Network, police officers, nonprofit case workers, and school counselors are on the front lines of situational poverty, and as Network partners, they now have the tools to do something about it. This video shows how they can jump in and make a difference.
The video follows an interaction between police officers and a struggling family arguing how to make ends meet. It outlines how officers can access and order Trusted World resources for the family while on the call.
Here are some excerpts of the dialog.
>>Husband: I mean, we don’t got enough money for food for the next week. I’m basically in rags right now. I don’t got no clothes to be wearing. We got kids, can’t support them anymore, it’s just hard times right now.”>>
>>Officer: ” So I have the perfect resource for you. We have an organization called Trusted World, and they’ll be able to provide you with some resources. So if you need clothes for the kids, clothes for yourself, or food for the home, they can help you with that.”>>
>>Wife: “That would be great.”>>
>>Officer: “Okay, so I’m just gonna get some information from you, so if you need clothing for yourself, I need your shirt sizes, top and bottom; if your children need clothing as well, their clothing sizes and also if you need food.”>>
The video also shows the resources delivered by the officers to the family and highlights their excited reactions.
Police say having quality resources on demand is invaluable and helps them build trust with the people they’re sworn to serve and protect.
Charity Navigator Community Choice Award
Later this week, we’ll learn if Trusted World makes it to the finals of the 2023 Charity Navigator Community Choice Awards. Semi-finalists voting has ended for the 2023 Charity Navigator Community Choice Award. The organization nominated Trusted World because of its perfect rating. Charity Navigator is a national web-based organization that monitors and rates nonprofits by impact, leadership, and financial performance.
Charity Navigator announces the winning 12 semi-finalists on August 30th. That’s when voting begins for those finalists and ends on September 8th. On September 27th, Charity Navigator will announce the winners in 4 categories, from small to super-sized nonprofits.
Trusted World Founder and CEO Michael Garrett says this kind of recognition is critical for nonprofits. “This is important to the public when they go to make a financial contribution,” Garrett says. “That’s where they go to look.”
Charity Navigator gives Trusted World a perfect rating, with four stars and a 100% ranking.
Volunteers are vital to Trusted World’s mission of addressing situational poverty. Last week, State Farm made the most of their volunteer week. More than 50 employees showed up for two shifts on the same day.
This year alone, thanks in large part to volunteers, Trusted World has provided resources valuing $1,276,275.60, helping 19,799 hundred North Texans.
