Imagine being diabetic, living in a small single bedroom apartment on a small, fixed income struggling to pay for medicine, rent, and groceries. And then, COVID-19 hits.
Helen doesn’t need to imagine. Her health issues put her at high risk if exposed to the virus, making it even harder to get the food she already struggled to afford. Thankfully, because of you, seniors like Helen could have boxes of food delivered to their front step when COVID-19 forced many of our community’s seniors to isolate themselves in their homes.
“This food has so much meaning to me,” she said. “Just being alive, being here, waking up and having enough to eat — it’s enough. It keeps me going.”
Thank you for providing meals and HOPE to seniors like Helen. Your support makes an incredible difference in the lives of seniors facing hunger.
