Hi! My name is Olivia.
Things have been different at my house lately.
My sister and I used to play with my mom every day. We’d make lunch together and she would take us to the park while my dad was at work.
Then, a few weeks ago, my dad was in an accident. The doctors aren’t sure what happened. He didn’t go to work anymore. My mom tried to cheer us up with some of our favorite meals but she didn’t always have what she needed to make them the way she used to.
A neighbor came by last week and drove us to a new place. It said “Community Pantry” on the wall. I heard my mom explain to a woman about my dad’s accident and that she was going to start a new job until he got better.
That night all four of us had spaghetti, meatballs, salad and bread. We had everything we needed.
Olivia is like many kids in our community that need your help today. Thanks to you, her family is able to receive food while her mom starts a new job.
Your gift of hope today will make sure families like Olivia’s are able to get the help they need to get back on their feet.
