For many in our community, the holidays can be extra challenging and present families with additional financial stress. In fact, EVERY SINGLE DAY in Howard County 1 in 4 families struggle to make ends meet.
Our partners at the Community Action Council are providing full holiday meal kits to families in our community. The CAC's mission is to diminish poverty, enable self-sufficiency and advocate for low-income families and individuals, and they continue to see an increase in demand for services at the Howard County Food Bank.
Every $50 helps to provide dinner for a family of four. Our goal is to raise at least $1,000 together to provide 20 or more meals to our neighbors in Howard County this Thanksgiving.
Can you help? Any amount is valued and appreciated.
We also encourage you to consider engaging your family in a volunteer effort to support CAC this 2022 Season of Hope - they have made it meaningful and easy! Here is CAC's Guide to Giving this holiday season, which provides numerous opportunities for you and your family to make a difference.
Thank you - we are grateful for all of you!
