Those in Need

You can make a difference to someone in need. Reach out to an organization that builds housing for low-income families, or supports communities after natural disasters. Soup kitchens need help serving food. Help out at a garden that grows food for the hungry – or start your own. Or start a drive to collect food and essentials for people in need.
