EMERGENCY MEAL NEEDS

We are in critical need of prepared meals for youth utilizing our Emergency Winter Shelter to escape the cold and rainy weather and youth in our Short Term shelter. Without the kindness of community members like you, these kids will go to bed hungry.

We are currently requesting prepared meals to feed 20 youth. After all, a warm meal makes for a happy heart.
