Re//DEFINED Exchange Sets New Monthly Impact Record; Surpasses 900 Impacted


The Re//DEFINED Exchange is a community pantry that provides basic necessities to individuals and families in need.

Re//DEFINED opened the 4th and final quarter of 2020 in record breaking fashion. For the month of October, The Re//DEFINED Exchange impacted a single month's best of 271 individuals! The previous record of 235 was set in July of this year.

"Not only were we able to increase the number of individuals and families impacted, we were also able to increase the number of items distributed per person. A recent report by the UnitedWay Louisiana showed that nearly half of the families in Rapides Parish struggle to acquire basic needs; but unlike the Goodwill, the Salvation Army, and other thrift stores, the services of the Re//DEFINED Exchange are at no charge to individuals and families. Our collect-ship-impact model has become sustainable thanks to great sponsors and supporters. This allows us to make the most direct and immediate impact on the residents of Central Louisiana." -Chairman Lewis.

This month, the pantry distributed to: 

Central Louisiana Homeless Coalition 

Family Justice Center-CENLA

Fostering Community Care Closet

Re-Entry Solution

S.T.A.R. Central Louisiana

W.O. Hall 6th Grade Academy 

Year to Date, The Re//DEFINED Exchange has impacted 919 individuals and families.

If your organization serves disadvantaged individuals and families and is interested in joining our distribution network for 2021, please contact us!

Additionally, we are seeking sponsorship for the FY 2021. Sponsorship starts at $150/year.
