Feeding our Weekly Families
We have 18 families all in need that we rotate on a weekly bases. These families all have health issues and are very thankful for getting our help with healthy, natural and organic foods. Some of them have cancer, fibramolgia, arthritis, heart conditions and other illnesses that keep them from working full time and some not able to work at all. All of the families are single parent and a few grandparents that are raising their grandchildren.
Last week our family was a working single mom with a 10 yr. old daughter and 12 yr. old son. She struggles to give her children the food each day that they need. The daughter was so delighted when she saw the roasted chicken that she just hugged it and didn’t want to let go. The children and mom helped to unload my van and carry the groceries to their upstairs apartment. Mom and daughter saw the cereal and opened it to eat while unpacking the bags.
It saddens me when I deliver to these families that they are struggling to make their ends meet. Your donation, participation makes a difference to us as Emerald City Lights and especially to the families we deliver too. So to help us help our families won’t you think about a small donation, http://emeraldcitylights.com/donate/
