A Special Way to Give – FAmily-to-Family
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has – Margaret Mead
Family-to-Family is a national hunger and poverty relief non-profit organization based out of Hastings-on-Hudson, New York. This organization pairs “families with ‘more’ to families with profoundly less”. There are many people struggling and we often think, how can I help? What can I do? Where would I even begin? Family-to-Family is a perfect organization to work with.
The goal of this incredible organization is to ease “the burden of hunger and poverty in some of America’s poorest communities”. There are far too many families in this country struggling. Putting food on the table everyday is a constant source of anxiety. Family-to-Family helps to alleviate this stress by linking families who have the ability to help to families that are struggling.
Ways to Give
This organization provides many ways to help such as:
- Donating – a monetary donation to this organization.
- Compassionate Gifts – a gift given in someone’s name.
- Sponsor a Family – sponsor a family with a monthly box of groceries.
- Corporate Funding – companies can contribute or sponsor more than one family.
- In Kind Donations – companies can contribute extra goods directly to this organization.
Family-to-Family also runs other projects to improve our communities, such as: Kids Literacy Projects and Empathy Projects for All. Kids Literacy Projects bring books to children in need, creating the opportunity for lifelong learning. Empathy Projects for All give opportunities for people to show kindness to others in different ways. These opportunities are through the by the Birthday Giving Project, where a party in a box is supplied to a child in need or a Giving Party, which is a birthday party that gives back.
Family-to-Family helps people locally and around the country, from New York to Florida and from Maine to New Mexico. When we reflect on our lives, it truly is the kindness that we show others that matters.
Family-to-Family links donor families to families in need creating a unique one-to-one connection- and donors provide a week’s worth of groceries for the family they are matched with meant to arrive the last week of each month when food stamps (SNAP BENEFITS) are all used up. SPONSOR A FAMILY
