May Compassion Be Your Guiding Light This Christmas Season
Just the other day, 6 year-old Darren Grimes told me he was hungry. He lives with his mother Casandra, and 3 siblings in Hamtramck.Casandra works at Better Life Bags, and although she has a Bridge Card, it only equals roughly $1.48 per meal.
Did you know that 45.9% of Bridge Card participants in Michigan are children?
If you donate right now Darren won't go hungry!
Because your donation enables Detroit Friendship House to supplement Casandra and her children's meals with milk, eggs, yogurt, canned products, pasta, cereal, fresh fruit and vegetables, and about 20 pounds of meat every month. Oh, and Julie, our food manager, always has cookies for all the kids who come to Friendship House.
We do this with a very small staff and limited budget for hundreds of families in Hamtramck every year. In fact, last year we provided just over 600,000 lbs. of food to families like Casandra. That's over 300 tons of food!
We cannot possibly do this without your help! Will you help us continue to provide supplemental food to Casandra's family - and hundreds of others?
Casandra wanted us to tell you thank you for your help and Darren said thanks for the cookies!
