Here’s how you can help make the new year bright for those in need.

HumanKind’s Emergency Food & Household Pantry provides nonperishable food, school supplies and self-care items to clients participating in our programs and services. This additional support allows our clients to weather short-term crises without having to pursue fast cash options, such as pay day or title loans. Your support will directly benefit economically struggling families by providing them with an opportunity to meet their family’s basic needs without jeopardizing the household’s financial position. Receiving items from the Emergency Pantry allows these clients to provide nutritious meals for their family in the short term while still meeting other financial obligations, a positive step toward their ultimate goal of achieving long-term financial stability.
