February 2017
A  monthly newsletter of the Great Plains Food Bank
Sarah joined the United States Navy at age 17 and served four years before being honorably discharged. She is now a single mother raising her two daughters, Cadence (7) and Katelyn (4). She desperately wants to work full-time, but financially isn't able to afford child care. Her youngest daughter goes to pre-school three hours a day and Sarah does all she can at that time to make ends meet, but at the end of each month still comes up short. On February 9, 2017 every donation of $10 or more, up to $65,000, will be matched during Giving Hearts Day. Simply go to givingheartsday.org and help make a difference in the lives of children like Cadence and Katelyn!


#36percent of the 93,000 the Great Plains Food Bank

serves each year are children.

Together we can end childhood hunger.
