Many of us remember our mothers encouraging us to finish our meals and reminding us of the hungry children in our country and around the world. At Johnnycake, we know many such children nearby.
Every day we meet mothers and grandmothers who are working hard to put healthy food on the table. Sometimes they need a little help. Low wages, part-time employment, and the cost of child care and housing can present real challenges to making ends meet.
Fortunately, the support we receive from generous individuals has allowed us to provide nutritious food – as well as one-on-one coaching, emergency financial assistance, and other services – that help these women manage short-term crises and overcome long-term challenges.
This year, give a Mother’s Day gift that will last much longer than flowers or chocolates.
By making a gift to the Jonnycake Center, you can give local Moms and Grandmas peace of mind knowing that if times get tough, they have a place to turn for food and help with other basic needs.
Thank you for making a difference in our community.
