A Conversation about Holiday Helpings with Lauren Taylor

Our community members are in deep need due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many low-income families are struggling with employment, food security, and mental health. The holiday season is here, but celebrating with family and friends may not be a priority to everyone. Holiday Helpings this year is about turning tradition into progress, we’re providing the necessary tools for people to make their own decisions. This year Lauren Taylor, Representative Payee Benefits Coordinator, created a classy page to help raise funds for Holiday Helpings. We got the chance to speak with Lauren about her participation this year.

A Conversation about Holiday Helpings with Stacey Johnson

Holiday Helpings has always been more than just providing meals to low-income families, it’s a time for families to come together and participate in something meaningful. Bread for the City’s Northwest Resource Systems Specialist, Stacey Johnson, has participated in Holiday Helpings each year with a fundraising drive and it’s become a welcomed family tradition. The key to her family’s success is having fun while helping the community that Bread for the City serves. We got the chance to speak with Stacey about her participation each year.

2020 Holiday Helpings is about more than just a meal

Last year, Bread for the City believed no family or individual should spend the holiday season without celebrating with their families and friends, due to their inability to pay. This year, we still have that same belief, but celebrating with family and friends may not be a priority to everyone.  Holiday Helpings this year is about turning tradition into progress, we’re providing the necessary tools for people to make their own decisions. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many people may not celebrate the holidays with a feast, but we still must provide support to our neighbors during these times.

Holiday Helpings

Holiday Helpings is different this year, but your support is still needed. You can help us raise $1,000,000 for 15,000 families who are impacted by this pandemic.
