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.
For over 30 years Holiday Helpings has given families and individuals the food to celebrate with their loved ones. It has always supported low-income residents in our communities who don’t have the resources to provide a holiday meal for their families.

What does Holiday Helpings mean to our clients? At Bread for the City, it is the opportunity to reduce the burden of poverty for our neighbors and help families maintain traditions, celebrations, and stability. For our clients, it can be a channel to critical resources.
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.SPONSOR A FAMILY
