A local charity is giving people hope for the holidays.
Earlier this year, Loaves and Fishes lost funding from one of their primary sponsors, they recently started their helping other people eat or “HOPE” holiday food drive.
With a 71% increase in new family enrollments this year, donations are needed now more than ever.
“ Its just a universal concept to have food at the table, everybody wants to help and basically help our neighbors and our friends, you never know who you’re going to help at Loaves and Fishes – it could be someone right next to you!“ said Jody Bender, Community Relations Director at Loaves and Fishes
A contribution of $25.00 is able to feed a family of eight for the holidays and can be made at loaves-fishes.org
Food donations are also welcome such as gift cards for turkeys, boxed potatoes, canned soup or cranberry sauce as well as brownie and pie mixes.
Donations are always accepted at Loaves and Fishes but you can make holiday donations from now until mid December.
