Family SOS supports over 80 families who yesterday, could barely put food on the table working 9-5 jobs. Today, they don’t have jobs to go to.
To put it bluntly, our families need food. $25 supports one of our families in desperate need of food support at this time.
Although we have received some government funds to assist us with these efforts, the demand for our services is quickly outpacing available resources. In response, we are launching a campaign called Families Helping Families. A $25 donation helps one family put food on their table for a week.
The HRM doesn’t belong to a virus. It belongs to us. We are stronger than a pandemic, than unemployment or food insecurity and we will fight this, each and every day until it’s gone, until every parent in the HRM doesn’t have to worry about how they’re going to feed their children.
This is the greatest time of need Halifax has seen in more than a generation. Together, we can do something about it.
