You Can Help Our Neighbors Going Through Hard Times
“I try not to despair,” says Mariana, a 45-year-old Gloucester mother of four children under the age of 12, when asked about how she will manage the record high food prices and electricity increases her family will face this winter.
As it is, her family barely gets by. She keeps her family fed with healthy fruits and vegetables, as well as chicken, beef, and other essentials thanks to weekly groceries from The Open Door.
This summer and early fall, as food prices continued to rise, requests for food assistance at The Open Door climbed 31% over the same period last year.
YOUR HELP can mean the difference between people choosing to eat or pay rent, buy medicine, or keep the heat on. Struggling families and elders make difficult choices everyday to make ends meet.
