More than one in six people don’t know how they will get or afford their next meal. They’re often single parents or people who are working one or more jobs to make ends meet. Disasters such as Hurricane Irma or even an unexpected bill can keep them from being able to afford groceries.
You can help by hosting a food drive for non-perishable foods or hygiene items like soap, deodorants and toothbrushes. The Free Clinic will drop off a barrel at your location with a wish list of items and return to pick it up once your drive ends.
