Recently a donor donated a delivery van for our mobile food program. "I am blessed that I could bless you with this". He felt honored that the vehicle was going to be used to deliver food boxes to folks that couldn't leave their homes because of disabilities.
A brand new client came in. He was apologizing for having to come in and get help but his circumstance was that he was now taking care of his grandchildren and needed the help. We walked in through the line and by the time he was done he was in tears. He had no idea that he could get so much help and he was blown away by the generosity and kindness. "Now I feel like i am going to be able to handle this life changing event with your help".
Kelly mother of 4 was accidentially left at home with out a way to purchase food. Her husband was sent out of state for a job. She called us to get an emergency box. When we arrived we got to talking to Kelly and we found out that one of her children was suffering from a rare bone disease and Kelly is unable to drive. That was a year ago and now Kelly and her family are like family to us. We have followed her daughters struggles through treatment at Childrens Hospital and we were there at christmas to fill their house with presents. We support them with food and hugs. Kelly was all alone before she called us and she says "We brought humanity back to a her lonely life".
Helping Hands Food Bank
In 2016 we served an average of 710 families each week, 125 Food4Kids food bags a week, 100 Mobile Food Boxes a week and handed out over 2.2 Million Dollars worth of food throughout the year. Over 60% our clients are either children or seniors. There is a sizable population of either physically or mentally disabled. Many are working, yet are unable to meet their families basic needs, including food.
We are making a positive difference for local families, and our community as a whole. We bring over 2 million dollars of resources into Skagit County annually and distribute this to those who need assistance. This assistance allows them to spend the money they do have on other needs supporting our local economy.
As a nonprofit organization, we network with local food providers and community organizations in order to provide the best services possible. We are only able to provide the support we give because of the generous support we receive from our local community.
