From the onset of the pandemic, our needs increased overnight and changed weekly. TCHP was faced with providing support to nearly double the number of children, while implementing physical distancing and procedures to keep our packing and delivery teams safe. Because of the increased need for our services, we focused efforts on raising funds to meet those demands. Thanks to supporters like you, we met the goals that enabled us to provide weekend nutrition for those 18 and younger.
We are tremendously appreciative of your support, and we sincerely thank you. We’ll continue to provide you with updates on how your funding, volunteering, and spreading awareness are keeping us strong and actively serving Brevard’s most vulnerable children.
