Between her 5-year-old and her toddler with special needs, Stephanie always has her hands full. Then there are the other neighborhood kids who come in and out, like little Peyton, her daughter Clara Fe’s best friend.
Stephanie hasn’t been able to keep a job because of all the time off required to care for her son, Michael, who suffers from a pituitary gland disorder. So it’s a struggle to pay the bills and keep food on the table.
“I make sure they eat,” says Stephanie, “but I’m not always able to eat.” That’s why the help the family receives from Family Worship Center’s pantry means so much.
“The first thing the kids do when we get our box of food is tear through it looking for their favorite things,” Stephanie laughs. “I like apples and strawberries and grapes,” says Clara Fe.
The extra help the pantry provides means Stephanie doesn’t have to worry so much about how she’ll feed her kids — and herself.
Thanks to support from people like you, Stephanie is able to get the nutritious food her children need to grow up healthy and strong.
