As a non-profit organization, Second Harvest relies on philanthropic and community support to provide food and resources for those working toward a life of self-sufficiency. Hunger and poverty affect thousands of people in our service area each year. People find themselves in challenging situations and we see it as our job to provide them with help for today and hope for tomorrow. Consider the following situations:
* Dad is laid off from work and mom becomes sick. The medical bills start to pile up and the family is making tough choices between medication and food.
* Cold weather arrives and a single dad with three children is doing his best to stretch every penny as far as possible. He feels the struggle of deciding between paying the heating bill and making a grocery trip.
* A senior woman finds herself with a disability that keeps her from being able to drive, limiting the amount of food typically in her home.
Your monthly gift helps us ensure that the people in our community who need help the most are getting it.
