Family-to-Family finds original, inventive and creative, out of the box ideas to help families in need not just to fill an empty stomach but also to stimulate a hungry mind. And this is only a small fraction of what this wonderful organization is doing for families in need around the country.
I have been so blessed to have enough to feed my family an get all we need. We are not rich and both work very hard to pay our bills. The $31 i spend each month to help a family just like mine is just a drop in the bucket and I don't miss it. i have such a wonderful sponsored family and we have gotten to be very good friends. We share common interests and hobbies and have fun learning about each others families and the different parts of the country . I have a special needs child myself and it is one of our greatest pleasures to shop for our family together and send those extra boxes of extra and gifts occasionally. it teaches children thankfulness for what they have and generosity to those in need. I love the idea of Family to Family. The name says it all. mine to yours. The way it should be everyday, everywhere.
It is easy to acknowledge suffering and sometimes feel powerless to make a difference. By being a sponsor, I literally pack food in a box that goes directly to a family in need. It doesn't take much time, or cost much money. The gratification I get when I imagine my recipient family opening a box full of nutritious food is immeasurable. Ilise Harris
I am the local mayor of the village where Family-to-Family is based, and I am also a donor and supporter. What impresses me about F-to-F? Tireless devotion to the job by the volunteer staff. Innovation to provide new servcies when needs are identified and willingness to drop efforts when they are completed or unsuccessful. Successful use of media (both traditional and new media) to get the word out. Sensitivity to the clients - they're always treated compassionately and with great respect for their privacy.
I first contacted Family-to-Family in December, 2011 and was matched up with a single mom and her children. The experience has been wonderful. I hope to meet them in person this summer. They are always very appreciative of all that I and the Mission do for them. It feels good to know you are helping a family in need, but what they may not realize is that they are also helping "me." Becoming an empty nester recently hasn't been easy, so having another family, so to speak, to concentrate on has been a blessing. Thank you Family-to-Family!
