Now, imagine being a mom facing a life-challenging illness such as cancer or HIV/AIDS. In addition to taking care of the daily responsibilities of motherhood, these moms have to spend extra time and energy fighting to stay healthy.
Our mothers do so much for us. Your support makes it possible for Food & Friends to be there for them when they need it most. We help mothers put healthy, nutritious food on the table for their families, giving them one less thing to worry about. The words of this mother best express the impact Food & Friends' services have had on her life:
"There have been so many times when I was too tired or weak to do the things I normally do as a Mom. That’s where you have come to the rescue. There are days when I am just too tired to cook and all I have to do is take something that you have graciously prepared, and my family and I have a nice meal."
As we celebrate moms this Mother's Day, we invite you to honor the Super-Moms in your life:
- Donate in honor or memory of your mother. Your gift will help support programs that benefit mothers and their children.
- Commit to delivering meals. Each route takes less than two hours and the rewards are immeasurable.
Thank you for helping us take care of the Super-Moms who selflessly put the needs of others in front of their own.
