We reached out and you stepped up!
With your support, we’ve been able to add weekly drive-thru distributions as part of our COVID-19 response.
We recently met Cheralyn at one of these pop-up events and based on what she shared with us, it sounds like she also knows a thing or two (or three) about stepping up for her community in need:
“I took in three children under 3-years old because nobody wants to take foster kids during a pandemic. I guess I had a choice, but my heart didn’t have a choice. It will be six months before the foster care money comes in for the kids, so here we are. The Food Bank and (partner) pantries have been such a big help.”
Sometimes the helpers even need help. Thank you for being there for Cheralyn, so she can be there for those children during these extraordinarily challenging times.
