Making Holidays — and Birthdays — Special

Natasha is hoping to make this Thanksgiving extra special since her daughter Braeleigh turns 2 the next day.

She wants the meal to include some Thanksgiving staples like stuffing and pumpkin pie. Natasha is a medical assistant, but as a single mom raising her young daughter, it has been difficult to afford the basics.

So, she and Braeleigh came to Freestore Foodbank, where Natasha got everything she needs to make a meal for her “chosen family,” a group of friends and their children. Like these groceries, this group of friends has helped this single mother get through difficult times.

“With it being just us, sometimes it’s a lot,” Natasha says of working to stay afloat financially. “We have our own little family now.”

Now loaded up with groceries, Natasha knows she and her loved ones will be able to enjoy a delicious Thanksgiving meal, and priceless time together.

Thank you for opening your heart and supporting families just like Natasha’s!
