NO ONE SHOULD HAVE TO WORRY about whether they will have food on their plate or a roof over their head. But the reality is that hunger and homelessness are widespread problems that affect far too many people in the greater Kenosha-area community.
The COVID-19 crisis cast a spotlight on both the dire need in our community, but also on the generosity of our neighbors when they see that need. However, giving—in both dollars and food or other goods—has decreased over the past two years, while need has not. Please join us this week to learn about and take action to reduce both hunger and homelessness in our community.
