As many families were busy preparing for the holidays, 34 year old Anntionette was trying to find some extra help for her family of seven after a fire destroyed their belongings and left them staying with relatives.
“My parents and grandmother help with the kids while I’m at work,” said Anntionette. “The kids eat a lot!”
Anntionette was already struggling to make ends meet on her income as a home health care worker. She has been going to the Food Bank partner agency Ray of Hope to help feed her growing children, but the fire has added extra expenses to her already thin-stretched budget. Not having to worry about food for her kids is a big relief.
“I really appreciate this program. It’s a blessing for me and my kids!” Anntionette said.
