Share a Sponsorship – Help Our Family of the Week
Every week we post a short profile of one family in our program that is waiting for a sponsor. This week it’s a Texas family that’s badly in need of help. We have one sponsor signed up to share this sponsorship….looking for the other half!
THE FAMILY… Shundra is a 28 year old single mom with six young children – ranging in age from 2 to 11 years old — living in Waco, Texas. Shundra is looking for work, but right now she needs help just putting food on the table! To share this sponsorship and provide Shundra and her children with monthly groceries, click here.
DoorKnob Dinners & Let’s Do Dinner – 2,000 and Counting!
We’re thrilled with the success of our “DoorKnob Dinners” and Let’s Do Dinner! food drive projects. In just four months, volunteers in Hastings on Hudson, NY, Worcester, MA, Bowling Green, KY and Englewood Cliffs, NJ have donated groceries for over 2,000 individual dinners to local food pantries!
Once a month DoorKnob Dinner volunteers leave a bag of specific groceries to make one dinner meal for a family of five hanging on their doorknob. A neighborhood coordinator picks the bags up and brings them to the pantry. Let’s Do Dinner! engages workplaces, places of worship and social clubs in the same effort. We supply a recipe to make it personal.
F-to-F’s founder (Pam Koner) has joined the blogosphere! Aptly named “Pam-demonium,” the blog chronicles Pam’s thoughts and hectic life running an out-of-the-box hunger and poverty relief organization. Pam-demonium touches on everything from being a mindful human being when you’re doing your shopping… to recycling unwanted clothes to help a good cause (Family-to-Family!)… to why it’s important to teach your kids early and often about poverty…. to F-to-F’s office mascot Wally, a pug who wears a diaper!
Growing by Leaps and Bounds
In the last few months, thanks to funding from Welch’s, we’ve expanded our hunger relief sponsorship program into 5 new communities. We’re now in Brookside, Alabama… Southaven, Mississippi… Whitney, Nevada… Baltimore, Maryland and Worcester, Massachusetts. That puts us in 17 states. 33 to go!
