Family-to-Family in Action
A little glimpse into how Family-to-Family operates…. Last year after F-to-F Executive Director Pam Koner watched the documentary “Rich Hill,” about growing up poor in a rural Missouri town, Family-to-Family reached out to the principal of the local elementary school to see how we could help. Today Family-to-Family sponsors families there with monthly groceries…which in recent months have included bananas, broccoli, peas, carrots, peanut butter, hamburger meat, bread, potatoes, corn, rice and watermelon!
New “Gap” Pantry Helping Families Caught Between the Cracks
Together with Red Bird Mission in Beverly, KY we’re excited to announce the opening of the new “Gap” Pantry. Intended to help the working poor, who aren’t eligible for Red Bird’s regular food pantry, the Gap Pantry provides families with incomes just above the poverty line with fresh groceries, including dairy items, fruit and vegetables, every month. A sponsorship for one gap family is only $10 a month! Read more here.
Morgan Stanley Puts F-to-F Giving Projects Front and Center
Over three days in June, five groups of employees at Morgan Stanley in New York City came together for an in-house giving event to make Family-to-Family’s Birthday Bags, Stuffed Shirts and “S’nocks.” The event, which drew about 100 employees, was part of Morgan Stanley’s 10th Annual Global Volunteer Month.
Almost 200 finished projects (birthday parties in bags for kids, t-shirts with personal care products and new socks filled with snacks for the homeless) were delivered to Covenant House in New York, to be given out to teens and young adults in need.
