People Helping People

Issue: Spring 2022

I’ve been in amazement over these last two and a half years as, together, we have faced and met every challenge this pandemic has thrown at us.

In this issue, you’ll read how the YMCA boldly sprang into action to partner with us to help meet the skyrocketing need for food in the midst of the pandemic. You’ll meet one of our incredible team members who continues to move heaven and earth to meet the increasing demand for food. And last, but certainly not least, you’ll read the story of an incredible young man whose first response to the increasing threat of hunger was not for himself, but for the families in need living in his neighborhood. Today, he is distributing 200 bags of food to his neighbors every week.

Thank you for your faithful generosity. If not for you, none of this would be possible. I am so appreciative of your ongoing commitment to help end hunger here.
