Sally is a single Mom with 3 small children who was recently divorced and was finally able to arrange daycare and a job. However, she had fallen behind with her living expenses and had not received child support for some time, so was unable to provide any kind of gifts or even a special meal for her family at Christmas. Thanks to the generosity of an individual family, she was able to have Christmas complete with a meal and gifts for her children. After receiving the donation, and putting it in her car, she ran back to hug us with tears in her eyes and a lump in her throat!
We will be closed for Food Distribution on Good Friday, Apr. 18 but will be OPEN on Easter Monday, Apr. 21
