Giving families something to be thankful for

You gave these families something to be thankful for.

Thank you to everyone who was involved - we couldn't have done it without you.

Brighten the holidays for local families & seniors

For many families the holidays can be a difficult time of year, buying gifts and putting extra food on the table is simply not possible. Some families are worrying about more important things, like how they will keep their lights on, or where their next meal will come from.
 
Your support brightened the holidays for over 1,125 families and seniors. With your help, we distributed 76,960 holiday meals during the 2018 November and December months and 2,784 children and seniors received holiday gifts. Without you this would not be possible, thank you!

Listen to families you helped support

Eat Smart, Live Strong monthly food for seniors

For over 100 low-income seniors who qualify for People and Nutrition (PAN boxes filled with federal commodity foods), our Eat Smart, Live Strong is growing in popularity.  With support from program sponsors we provide participants additional fresh produce and healthy foods on their monthly distribution day.

Eat Smart, Live Strong groceries include items such as sweet potatoes, fresh oranges and apples or canned peaches. Once a month participants arrive on their own at our food pantry or may request rides through our transportation service. Pantry volunteers not only assist seniors as they select their items but carry selections to their car or van.
