Love in Action

A season of generosity and celebration!

When Tacara Howard walked into her first Getting Ahead group session she was “heavy hearted.” Still grieving the loss of her Mom, she had just gotten out of a bad relationship, was homeless, unemployed and sleeping in her car. This single Mom of two boys, ages 9 & 14, was about to give up, when a friend and graduate of Getting Ahead suggested she give the group a try. “I was trying a lot of different things to get back on track but until Getting Ahead nothing seemed to be working. I felt like I was back at square one so I thought ‘why not give something new a try?’ I’m so glad I did. Getting Ahead saved my life.”
Tacara’s story is a story of kindness. It includes kind and hospitable pantry volunteers. A friend and graduate of Getting Ahead offering encouragement and hope. New friends, in
fact a dozen of them, who investigated the effects of poverty in their lives. More new friends, the Advocates for Change community from different backgrounds supporting and
encouraging her new future. A volunteer coach assisting her to prepare for a better job. And the admiration of her boys who see her as their hero! And, it’s all because of your support.

Your generosity during Love in Action will mobilize volunteers and assist families like Tacara’s to improve their lives and futures and provide food so that 14,000 children, parents, senior adults and others n our community will not go to bed hungry.
