Whether one is big or small, the holiday season is a magical time filled with joy, gratitude, peace, hope and wishes come true. However, the wish of each individual is different. For our neighbors struggling with hunger, they may have a wish as simple as having enough food to feed themselves and their children not only during the holidays, but every day throughout the year. Perhaps a wish for a job that will allow them to provide a home, food and heat all at the same time. There are over 100,000 individuals in our region who do not have enough food
to eat. This always leads to tough choices of which life essentials they should choose to go without on any given day. Food or medication? Food or heat? Food or diapers? The list is endless, but in reality, none of
these options are really non-essential. The hunger crisis is affecting the employed, singles, families, elderly, college students, children - hunger knows no bias. Food is a valuable gift to so many in our community - a wish come true. This holiday season, you can help grant thousands of wishes by partnering with Channel One Regional Food Bank to help provide the simple gift of food to individuals and families.
