SHE WORRIED ABOUT THE ELECTRICITY BEING TURNED OFF. YOU HELPED HER TO BECOME EMPOWERED
No parent should have to look into an empty cupboard every night and wonder how they’re going to feed their children. Yet this is the reality for many.
Thankfully, with support from people like you, this challenging existence is being made better.
When Earla was new to Canada, 20 years ago, she worried about how to feed her two children without a full-time job. Things began to turn around when she secured safe, affordable housing for people dealing with mental health issues and poverty. The building also housed a client-run onsite food program operated with Daily Bread. This food program was the first step toward building a bright future for Earla and her family.
Earla and her neighbour Tricia were eager to sign up for a steering committee for the new food bank. “I saw how important this program was to my family and neighbours, not only because of the food, but because of the peace of mind it provided,” she says.
The transformation for people like Earla is profound. Your support of Daily Bread truly changes lives. With food on the table and the skills she learned, Earla was able to find full-time employment. She is now supervisor at a security firm in Toronto, and her children attend the University of Toronto.
They had dreams. You helped turn them into reality.
