Hunger Survives Pandemic

As we all do the right things, social distance and stay home as much as possible, the needs of our homeless neighbors are greater than ever.

We called for your help, and our Stigma volunteers delivered! You donated peanut butter, jelly, bread, and a whole bunch of pairs of socks for us to distribute in Civic Center Park this past Thursday. One of our loving neighbors even rallied her block to make sandwiches for us to distribute. The kindness and generosity was overwhelming!

Others helped financially making donations to the our mission to defeat the stigma. To all of you who helped in so many different ways, we are so thankful!

Our community needs us, and we will continue to look for new ways to rally together and make a difference. The pandemic might alter our tactics, but it won’t lessen our resolve to help our neighbors in need. Thanks for your continued support, and look for news about more ways to get involved.
