No Family Should Worry About Having Enough to Eat

As Thanksgiving approaches, many of us look forward to everything the holiday brings. It’s a chance to gather with friends and family, make memories and give thanks around a well-laid table.

But that’s not what Thanksgiving means for neighbors like Ann.

A Navy veteran, Ann signed up to serve our country as soon as she was eligible. When she suddenly became a single mom after completing her service, she was caught in a bind between earning enough to provide for her family or caring for her kids.

“I can’t afford full-time childcare,” Ann tells us. “As a veteran, I feel disappointed in myself that I have to ask for help.”

No one should ever have to worry about having enough to feed their family — especially at Thanksgiving. With your gift, they don’t have to. Your gift will make this a Thanksgiving for all! Every $1 you give can help provide food for 2 meals.
