Ouida has lived a full life. At 94, she holds fond memories of growing up on a farm, raising four children, and working numerous jobs over the years to support her family.
Now in her golden years and still going strong, Ouida cares for a sick daughter who lives with her. But making ends meet is a challenge for the selfless senior who gets by on a fixed income.
Once Ouida’s monthly bills are paid, there’s very little left for food. “I get Social Security and a little bit of retirement,” Ouida says. “But it’s not very much. And there’s some health care expenses. I really have to stretch things.”
Because friends like you care, Ouida is able to get much-needed food from Feeding Northeast Florida for herself and her ailing daughter. And she couldn’t be more grateful. “We get vegetables … meats … eggs … milk … cereal,” Ouida says with a smile.
Ouida’s gratitude is obvious, and she has a few words she wants us to pass along: “Thank you, thank you, and thank you again!”
We thank you too and hope you will continue your support with a special gift today to help more seniors like Ouida.
Whatever you give today will be matched dollar for dollar — up to $25,000 — thanks to a generous Matching Gift. Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to make twice the difference for hungry seniors.
