Chell is a local small business owner. He works in transportation and recycling, but because he’s in his 60s and has health conditions, it wasn’t safe for him to keep working after the pandemic began.
“We really don’t know when I’ll be able to go back to work,” he says.
In the meantime, Chell has been caring for his two grandsons, ages 2 and 4, who have been without reliable access to daytime meals since their daycare and preschool closed.
Thankfully, Chell has been able to help provide for his grandkids’ nutritional needs. He can visit Crossroads to get food while he waits for the virus to subside.
“This has been a blessing for us to keep food on the table,” he says of the food pantry.
Chell hopes to reopen his business when he knows he can provide his services safely and efficiently. Until then, it’s a tremendous relief to know he has somewhere to go for food.
He knows his family would be facing hunger if it weren’t for your support, and Chell is so grateful you choose to give.
“Thank you,” he says. “You just don’t know how much it means to us who have to rely on support like this for the first time.”
Everyone is doing their best to navigate this uncertain time. Your support is a beacon of hope. Thank you for nourishing so many.
