Help a Family: 1-to-1
Sign up online to sponsor a family in need. Your monthly donation of $36.50* will help provide enough groceries for an average of 15 meals each month for a family struggling with hunger.
Once you sign up, F-to-F will match you with a family on one of the communities we sponsor, and email you information about your “new family.”
In addition to your monthly donation, you have the option of sending your sponsored family (via your local post office) a “monthly drive” item – a non-food basic necessity like winter gloves, toothpaste, shampoo, etc. For suggested monthly drive items click here. The U.S. postal service offers two flat rate boxes that are inexpensive and work well for monthly drive items. Click here for details.
Want to do more? To promote literacy in our communities through the recycling/sharing of children’s books, we encourage you to send one gently used or new children’s book to the family you’re sponsoring, monthly.
We hope that you and the family we’ve matched you with will want to learn more about each other. A great way to do this is to exchange letters or emails. Click to learn more (and scroll to FAQ #12).
