Kurt's Korner

With the holiday season practically here, I’m so proud of what we have accomplished this past year. We have provided meals and relief throughout our community like never before.

Yet, as I celebrate all we have done, I know this important work is far from over. Right now, so many families are barely surviving.

Regardless of the reason for their hardship, I intend to make sure we can offer them relief, helping them through these challenges. And I hope you’ll join me in this effort. Thanks to a $350,000 matching gift from Patrick and Susan Sedler and our generous Second Helping Fund donors, your gift goes twice as far.

When friends and neighbors gather around their dinner tables this holiday season to give thanks, it is so much more than a meal. It’s a reminder that each of us is part of this caring community.

This issue of Connection focuses on families preparing for Thanksgiving. Because of people like you, they have the nourishing food they need to make a holiday meal for the people they love.

Remember: Every $1 provides up to 6 meals. Thank you for your kindness.
