Dear Marcia,

This time of year is usually my very favorite. I always look forward to spending time with family, enjoying special meals and experiencing the season of sharing. But this year will be different for most of us. Especially our neighbors experiencing the devastating impact of job loss and reduced income because of the pandemic.

Celebrating the holidays at all will be out of reach for too many of our North Dakota and western Minnesota neighbors.

A nourishing meal can bring stability to a family who is facing uncertain circumstances. Because food takes center stage during the holidays, this time of year can be a painful reminder of hunger.

Your gifts help so much. As we look forward to our community’s recovery, I hope we can continue to count on your generous support. Thank you for your partnership in this important work!

Your partner in hunger relief,

Steve Sellent
