With the U.S. Federal budget on hold, many food Pantry clients have had their Link (Food Stamps) taken away or the amount has been lowered. The majority of the clients whom have been affected by this dramatic change have been our Elderly. They have been forced to make ends meet with the small amount of money they receive from SSI which is less than $1,000 a month. Parents with children who last year use to receive $250 in LINK now receive $17 and are now forced to stand in food pantry lines. CCJD's Food Pantry clients have doubled from 70 families a month, last year to 120 families a month this year. Please help CCJD continue their mission by making a small donation. If CCJD reaches $500 GCFD will add $100. All the money will be credited towards A00351 CCJD's account. Thank you and God Bless!!!
