Holidays are a special time. They can also be one of the most challenging times of the year for hungry children and families. Qiana knows that all too well. The single mom found herself in a pickle a few years ago, as she was trying to make ends meet for her three teenage boys. She turned to our holiday food distribution for help.
“For someone who doesn’t really have a lot, it helps out for people to get more or want to do more with themselves. To get better or have a better living situation.”
Qiana is one of countless lives impact by our holiday distributions, as well as other services. Last year, we helped 36,000 people with a Thanksgiving and Christmas meal alone.
“We didn’t have to go without,” recalls Qiana. “It gave me and my family a meal that we all could have as a feast and show the love of the holiday season.”
