As families prepare to celebrate the holiday's with delicious food, the thought of others not having a meal is heartbreaking. Thanks to supporters like you we can make sure that no one goes hungry. Recently we met *Nancy, a single mom of 4, who said "with the Food Bank's help I can give my children 3 meals a day instead of 1 or 2."You can make a difference with a donation today! With your help, the Food Bank will be there for people in need during the holidays and all through the year. They are neighbors like *Tom a Vietnam Vet who said he volunteers so he doesn't feel guilty about asking for a "hand out." Thank you for giving him a hand up.Any amount you give makes a big difference to the 44,000 who struggle in our county. $1 provides $10 worth of food to a grateful child, family or senior, like *Helen, a widow who is having a hard time making ends meet. "I am so thankful for the wonderful food. I can't afford fresh produce. This is a life-saver".Your donation will spread hope and cheer this holiday season and help feed the hungry children in our community, like *Sarah, a 4 year old little girl who's eyes lit up when she saw apple juice. "Mommy, mommy! Apple juice! We haven't had juice in so long."
Thank you for your caring and compassion, and warm holiday greetings to you and your family.
