The holidays are a joyous time of year. Still, for many in our community, such as those living alone and for low-income families, it is a period fraught with uncertainty and isolation. Last year, our Christmas program assisted 958 individuals, which included 267 families and 470 children. However, this year, we are seeing an unprecedented request for food and mental health assistance [25% increase over last year = over 160 additional clients per month]. We are relying, once again, on generous donors like yourself to help ensure that individuals in our community have food and gifts for the upcoming holiday season.
