Meet Trish, who is still struggling with the aftermath of Hurricane Irma

Feb1.pngOur disaster relief efforts continue! We met Trish in FL after our most recent trip to distribute food and supplies to those affected by Hurrican Irma. Trish's granddaughter was tragically murdered by a foster father and she is now determined to keep all her grandkids together, no matter the cost. She is still struggling with basic necessities, as well as issues with Hurricane Irma such as mold due to flooding. But thanks to your support of our disaster relief efforts, we were able to take food to FL and help feed Trish and countless others.
