Feeding A Website Design Need For A Non-Profit

To date this year, Five Technology has donated our web design services and content management solution for two different local organizations.  The first was to the “Vote Yes” committee in Delano for their efforts in getting two school referendums passed.  The second website has just recently been released and is for the non-profit Buffalo, Minnesota Food Shelf.

After I read a local newspaper article on the challenges the food shelf was facing for 2008, I decided that helping them launch a website would improve their ability to communicate with the community to increase support and also offer their services to those in need.

Non-profit web design

While the web design and site features are very basic, the site greatly increases the food shelf’s ability to gain visibility and share their mission.  One of the fun ways to help is by golfing in their 4th Annual Green Bean Open coming up, for which you can register online.

I also want to pass along thanks to the food shelf Director Jill Ask for the time she put in to helping us gather information to pull the website together.

  1. Great site Aaron; it looks nice and is very informative. I love to see when small business give back to the local community. One very important aspect that small businesses often miss is social responsibility. It’s one pillar of a successful business. Besides helping the community, the thing that’s great about volunteer work is that it’s also great guerrilla marketing!


  2. Thanks Dan, it does the trick for them. Great point about social responsibility, I hope we can always keep some focus on that. We do have a goal of having one pro bono project in the works always. Next up is a breast cancer awareness fundraiser through a motorcycle ride. It’s fun to impact their efforts!
