Holly’s Story

Good morning friends of Care and Share,

Monday, we featured a quote from Holly in our County Highlight post. Please take a minute to learn more about her story.

My boyfriend and I both work. I work for a company that builds door frames, and he works in fast food. We make enough to pay our bills each month ( gas, electric, mortgage, etc.), but after paying those, there’s really not much more to go around. I might have $20, and that’s not enough to feed our four kids.

A neighbor recommended the local food pantry which is supported by Care and Share, so I thought I’d give it a try. When I went for the first time, I was amazed at how easy it was, and how nice all the volunteers there were. Now, I visit at least once a month, and pick up staples like cereal, yogurt and vegetables for my kids.

My kids are growing, and they eat a lot. We can provide some food on our income, but not enough. I’m grateful we have this pantry in our community. It helps us provide the extra food our kids need to grow up strong.

Thanks for reading!
