Marcely is so grateful for your generosity that provides her children, Eric (12) and Lucas (4), with food while their school – a valuable resource for daily meals – is closed for summer break.
In addition to providing for her children, Marcely and her husband recently opened their home to her mother and sister with special needs. The family’s budget is stretched beyond its breaking point, and Marcely often has to decide between paying bills and going to the grocery store.
That’s why having a resource for healthy food like St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church Food Pantry, a Montgomery County Food Bank partner agency, is such a huge relief for Marcely.
She never lets anything go to waste and pays it forward by giving food to her neighbors in need whenever she can.
Your generosity doesn’t end with one person. In Marcely’s case, your gifts deeply impact others whose lives are intertwined with hers.
You’re providing Marcely, her children, her mother, sister and neighbors with food for their tables.
“I pray every day for the volunteers and donors,” Marcely says with deep gratitude. “I’m very thankful for [you].”
