On Saturday, February 20, 2021, Food For Friends provided some much-needed assistance to 15 single moms from the Fellowship Housing program in Hoffman Estate, IL.
Two loyal Food For Friends volunteers braved the cold weather and loaded their vehicles with food left over from the Life Bridge Community Church event earlier that day and drove off to the Fellowship Housing office in Hoffman Estates.
While the weather was very cold, it was sunny, which seemed to brighten up everyone’s day. As the moms approached the parking lots they were instructed to have a name tag on the dashboard and windows rolled up to minimize the contact. Once we identified the mom, we had her pop open her trunk. We then loaded food for the mom and her family into her trunk.
As each mom drove through our mini drive through event, we could tell that they were so happy and grateful for this gift of food. They are all trying so hard to start a new life for themselves and their children. Our little gift of food goes a long way to help them save for the future. It is obvious that we are making an impact in the lives of these moms and their children.
We value our partnership with Fellowship Housing and look forward to serving these 15 single moms again soon. For more about Fellowship Housing, we encourage you to visit the Fellowship Housing website.
