We Can Help. No Matter What.
A local man spent three years taking care of his wife as she fought a losing battle with cancer. He became his wife’s primary caregiver as her condition worsened and had to take a leave of absence from his work to do so. After her death, he returned to his job, but shortly after that, his position was eliminated.
In this tragic time, losing his wife and his living, he turned to the Food Pantry.
We provided him with food, and we worked with our partnering programs to find him medical help and sign him up for FoodShare (previously Food Stamps). While we could not make up for his many losses, the man expressed his gratitude for the help he received as he continued his healing process.
During a recent visit, he was happy to inform us that he found a new job that he loves.
