We received a message this morning from a mom. She asked for information about the food donations we need the most and how to donate funds to our Program. We explained donations go through Clay County YMCA marked “Youth Food Program” and emailed her a list of the foods we use weekly.
She is getting married later this year and has decided to ask for donations to the kids instead of wedding gifts.We shared a few messages and emails. We thanked her and told her how appreciative we are of her thinking of the kids on her special day.
She replied: “Always. This Program helped me (and my kids) when I needed it and we just want to be able to help out now that we don’t need it. We know there are a lot of kids that need it.”
Each one of us, doing what we can and when we can, is why this Program is possible and how we keep doing the impossible. We are a community, working together and doing the impossible together.
