Heather: You’re helping provide a better future for my family
For Heather, the holidays are a time to give thanks for what she has, but also a time to dream of a better future for her family.
“It’s a struggle. You want to be happy during the holidays, but it can be frustrating trying to get everything in order,” said Heather. “You’re pressured to provide for your children the same way you always have, even if you’re not in the same place financially.” Heather appreciates the food she receives from her local food shelf to help her get through the holidays.
“I always cook for the holidays. It’s important to me for my kids to have those meals cooked at home. Without the help we receive from the food shelf, I don’t think I could make it work,” said Heather.
