Families trying to make ends meet need all the help they can get. Food costs are one of the poor’s greatest expenses. By helping families with food expenses, we are helping them to maintain their housing and pay their utilities. Your gift will provide specific groceries for a poor family in need. Some families are given food vouchers to local grocery stores, so they may purchase exactly what they need to get through difficult times —particularly special dietary items prescribed by a doctor that are not available at local food pantries.
