We cannot thank you enough for your support.
There are many ways to give to BNOC:
One of the best ways to support our work is by way of a monetary donation.
You can assist the Bellville Neighborhood Outreach Center by making a financial contribution to assist in purchasing food, providing clothing, and maintaining operations that will help provide sustainability and improve quality of life. By clicking here, you can either make a one-time donation, or choose to make a recurring donation.
Your generous donation goes a long way here.
For starters, the Free Choice Food Pantry purchases the majority of its food from the Cleveland Foodbank. When purchasing food in this manner, we have phenomenal buying power! Your $20 donation allows us to purchase $160 worth of food. While we will gladly accept and appreciate your gift of food, we ask that you consider a monetary gift to allow our buying power to work!
Your donation is tax-deductible and can be a one-time gift or a regular monthly contribution. If you are interested in learning more about making a donation to the Bellville Neighborhood Outreach Center, please feel free to contact us.
Even more, when making a donation, you can rest easy knowing the Bellville Neighborhood Outreach Center is a GuideStar Exchange Gold Participant, meaning we've demonstrated our commitment to transparency.
Donations may be made in person, via US Postal Service, or online by clicking here.
Planned giving is a means by which a contributor directs the disposition of property during his or her lifetime.
The contributor sees the benefits of a contribution and gains peace of mind in knowing that the donated property has been directed as he or she wishes. Unlike wills, which become a matter of public record after an individual passes, lifetime gifts remain private.

Buy the Book:
It is Love: Triumph in Life and Missions
A purchase of this book, written by former Clear Fork Graduate and former Bellville resident, Greg Letizia, will benefit BNOC.
Sixty percent of the proceeds of the book are distributed to 7 different organizations (missions), including the Bellville Neighborhood Outreach Center. Greg has volunteered at the BNOC in the past. His book is available on Amazon at the following link: https://www.amazon.com/dp/1544289359/ref=rdr_ext_tmb
The book is about "world-traveling missionary Greg Letitia, [as he] shares his life story of growing up in small-town America. A natural actor/artiste, Letizia had several career starts (including a promising foray into the Hollywood, California, entertainment industry) as drug and alcohol abuse peeled away every shot at success. Only when these pernicious diseases were brought under control did the author find peace and hope. These days, Letizia travels the globe to lend a hand with missions in Third World countries. This book is to honor all of those who suffered and rejoiced with the author along his path to recovery, and to celebrate the world's children who have offered friendly smiles whenever he comes to visit..."
