This year’s hardships and tough economic times continue to affect children, families, and seniors in our community.
Brian, a 6-year-old from Sanford, went from listless to excited when he saw his mom walk through the door with boxes of food from a Second Harvest Food Bank feeding partner. He helped his mom make a stack of one breakfast and one lunch box for each of his brothers and himself on the dining room table.
He triumphantly held up a wrapped peanut butter and jelly sandwich and proclaimed, “This is MY Thanksgiving!”
Then he rushed down the hall to his bedroom, where he placed the sandwich in a secure location for safekeeping. Unsure of whether there would be a big family celebration this year, Brian made sure he had something set aside for the upcoming holiday.
Your gift today can give more families like Brian’s a Thanksgiving meal to look forward to.
Many of your neighbors are working hard to get back on their feet but still can’t afford rent, utilities, and food. And, with kids out of school for the holidays, budgets will only get tighter.
Will you help today? Your gift can turn hunger into hope for families this Thanksgiving.
Thank you for your compassion and generosity.
Give the gift of hope.
A $10 gift can provide 40 meals this holiday season.
