Thank You for Helping Our Families Restock the Fridge!

Thank You for Helping Our Families Restock the Fridge! 

Surprise! Ms. H came on Friday to receive an emergency food packing and was not scheduled to receive a gift card. But we learned that she lost her power for two days during the wind storm and lost all the food in her fridge. Thanks to YOUR support for our Restock the Fridge campaign, we were able to give her a grocery gift card for $100!

She is a single mom with four kids, including an adult child with disabilities. She recently started her own house-cleaning business and is working hard to grow it so she can be self-sufficient. She was so very thankful!

Britepaths put out the word after the March 2nd wind storm that we were collecting funds to help our clients Restock the Fridge if they experienced power outages. We received $3,625 in donations from March 4 through 9, and as we contact our clients and learn how they fared in the storm, the ones who lost power are so grateful to know that help is on the way. Any surplus from this campaign will provide emergency food assistance to families in crisis in our Food Bridge Program.

Thank you to everyone who donated to help our families in their time of crisis!
