It is such an essential part of our work…using modest sums of money to make a world of difference–we see this every single day.
When Pam Koner from Family to Family called a few weeks ago, she reported that the Thoreau, New Mexico Navajo community that she works with had an opportunity to get more frozen and fresh food product at reduced prices (or even free), if they could come up with more refrigeration.
When you realize that unemployment in Thoreau stands far above 50% and the region’s lack of paved roads and infrastructure, sub-standard housing and poor transportation, you just know that hunger is a huge problem here.
The Good People Fund’s investment of only $700 purchased a large refrigeration unit which will bring more food, at lower cost, to this nearly forgotten community.
It was that easy.
