DONATIONS THAT GO TO THOSE THAT NEED THEM.
The effects of social isolation, financial hardship, homelessness and food insecurity contribute to a lower quality of life. Those impacted by these challenges face a sense of hopelessness and everyday struggle, and we can’t help but feel the effects of that.
What does lending a helping hand look like for this population? It looks like sending cancer-stricken children to summer day camps to show they are loved and not forgotten. It’s hosting social events for isolated elderly and nursing home residents not regularly visited by family or friends. And it is fundraising for families and kids with cancer.
A little compassion goes a long way!
