Our faith guides us to love the poor and serve the needy without condition. Our mission directs us to provide assistance to anyone who asks for our help. The services our staff and volunteers provide help reduce hunger and prevent homelessness. We can only do what we do with your help. Easter reminds us that suffering still exists and that we are still called to feed and aid those in need. Spring is here and during these most holy of days let us continue to be of service to others, to draw upon the spiritual power that Easter gives us, and put our beliefs into action.East Appeal 17
