Mandy’s Farm Celebrates 20 Years of Service in 2020

Mandy’s Farm, having opened its doors in the year 2000, is thrilled to have reached our 20 year anniversary, and will be celebrating this organizational milestone at our Annual Kentucky Derby Party on May 2, 2020.

“Our programs have only increased in relevance, accessibility, and impact since our services launched two decades ago,” says Development Director, Jessie Calero. “We now support over 200 individuals and their families each month, and consistently find that the community need for the type of programming we provide outstrips our capacity. As we continue to grow, we hope to reach those who are still in need of Mandy’s Farm services, and anticipate a continued focus on access, excellence, and inclusion. We are so excited for what the next 20 years will bring.”

As part of a celebratory donation drive, Mandy’s Farm is working to obtain 20 donations, multi-year pledges, or planned gifts in the amount of $20,000. Ms. Calero shared that “through this 20th anniversary campaign, Mandy’s Farm will create an emergency fund that will allow us to address critical funding gaps as they arise, ensure that emergency maintenance issues can be quickly resolved, and provide piece of mind to families and individuals who rely on our programs. We want this campaign to be accessible to anyone who supports our mission, so we are also asking community members to also consider providing gifts in the amount of $20, $200 or $2,000. No matter your budget, we want anyone in the community to feel like they can be a member of the Mandy’s Farm family.”
