Most of us indulge a little on Thanksgiving – a helping of this, maybe an extra helping of that. Before we know it, we’re too full.
Unfortunately, far too many of our neighbors are rarely, if ever, full. In our area alone, one out of eight neighbors – and one out of five children – struggle daily with hunger. These neighbors are of every age, race, and ethnicity. Some have jobs, some are retired, and others struggle to find gainful employment. Many have never faced food insecurity until now.
For 34 years, the Sisters of St. Joseph have partnered with friends like you to fight hunger on Thanksgiving Day and throughout the year. Again this year, we will prepare and deliver more than 1,100 meals to the hungry, lonely and homebound – bringing our total of Thanksgiving helpings served to 30,000!
Will you help meet this goal – and, more important, help neighbors feel full and cared for this Thanksgiving?
Your gift to the Sisters of St. Joseph Thanksgiving Fund will make it possible to deliver holiday meals to more than 1,100 neighbors on Thanksgiving Day. And that’s not all. The remaining funds will be distributed to area food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, and other agencies that feed the hungry and fight poverty throughout the year.
