“I’ve never been at this place in my life where I’ve been struggling so much,” Jasmin says, reflecting on her family’s situation.
Her husband hasn’t worked since COVID-19 turned their world upside down. Jasmin only earns about $12 an hour. The couple is fortunate to have family help with childcare for Kayla and Layla, ages 6 and 5, and their three other young children, so dad can look for work. But providing for their family continues to be a tremendous challenge.
This past summer while Jasmin was running errands, she noticed the long line at Crossroads’ drive-thru pantry. She decided it was time to reach out for help.
Your support offers a needed hand up to countless neighbors like Jasmin. She was able to pick up a variety of nutritious groceries to help her little ones continue to grow strong and be healthy.
Jasmin hopes she won’t need to visit Crossroads’ pantry again but says it’s a comfort to know it’s there during this time of crisis. It seems every week and month during this pandemic brings new challenges, and families and seniors give thanks for your support.
“I don’t think you understand how helpful the food is,” Jasmin says. “For you to donate and give me and my family food, it’s great. Thank you!”
You truly change lives for the better through your generous partnership. We are grateful you choose to give!
