Unfortunately, as fallout from the pandemic continues, those whose health is most jeopardized are young children. HCC aims to make a dent in these statistics by making sure no kid goes hungry! HCC’s ‘Food Banking Reimagined’ model was intentionally designed to welcome and serve all underemployed and underrepresented families of different colors and origins, giving them a welcoming place to call home. Families shop daily for free, healthy food options, essential hygiene products, proper clothing, and baby essentials. Walking through life with our clients and renewing their hope in becoming more independent allows us to celebrate important milestones as they slowly alter their family’s future. How much of an impact does picking out your own chicken, cereal, peanut butter and jelly, diapers, toilet paper, toothpaste, shampoo, pair of shoes and favorite colored t-shirt have on an individual? For a child? Everything!
Last month HCC Maryvale manager, Paul, aka ‘Uncle Paul,’ was hand delivered this card that once again reminded all of us about the important work going on at HCC.
