Our Current Needs
With local unemployment at 11.5%, we are seeing a lot more first time families looking for help. We assisted 3000 families which represent approximately 8500 adults and children. We provided 35 tons of food and, in addition, we provided food baskets for 350 families at Thanksgiving. This Christmas season, we provided toys for 150 needy children.
