Helping Families this Holiday: A Success Story

Dear Friends,

Thanks to you, our Thanksgiving and #GivingTuesday campaigns were our most successful yet.  So far, you’ve helped us raise enough to supply nearly 2 million meals for hungry families in South Louisiana this holiday season!

I just wanted to take a moment to share with you the impact of your generosity.

Stacy Mansfield is a single mother of two beautiful children, five-year-old Gianna and nine-year-old Dominique.  When we met Stacy, she had recently lost her mother and her home, and she was moving her kids every couple weeks, sleeping on friends’ couches or at homeless shelters.  Gianna and Dominique started doing poorly in school, and Stacy was struggling to put food on the table.

Your donations helped Stacy get back on her feet.  Your support allowed us to offer Stacy and her kids a supply of emergency food and assistance with her job search.  With a little help, she quickly found a job and a place to live.  Now, Gianna and Dominique do not always have to worry about where their next meal is coming from.

Thank you for making the holidays so much brighter for Stacy and her children, and for so many other families in our community.  Your thoughtfulness is truly a life-saving blessing for families like Stacy’s, because in many cases, they have nowhere else to turn.

I hope your holiday is a blessed one.

P.P.S. Our holiday campaign isn’t over.  There’s still time to help struggling families put food on the table this Christmas.  A $1 donation provides 3 meals for a family in need.
