Hunger never takes a vacation

Summertime -- for many children it is three months full of sunshine, swimming and fun.  Unfortunately, for many families we serve, summertime is a struggle.

For 8-month-old Samuel and his big sister, Kia, summer is hard on their family.  With Kia home from school, their mom had to quit her job because they could not afford daycare for both children, no matter how many hours their dad worked.  With one less income during the hot months, they are constantly stressed about feeding their family of four.

The formula, food and diapers provided to Samuel at Infant Crisis Services will help ease the burden of their low-income summer.  It will give the family the extra money they need to put food for all of them on the table.
