"There are so many people that need help and people just walk by or they don't even stop. We need to stop and help people and not be afraid to help." It's a direct and simple statement from, Marian, a volunteer and client at Valley Outreach.
She recently shared
her experiences and we believe they perfectly illustrate the impact your support has on our community.
Prior to the pandemic, Valley Outreach saw a 25% increase in the use of food, clothing, resource assistance and case management programs year over year. The need is not going away and continues to grow. In March, Valley Outreach introduced drive-up, contactless food distribution. We are serving nearly 400 families each week. We've seen a 40% increase in the use of food programs, with 8% of people new to Valley Outreach.
The generosity of the community keeps us going strong so we'll always be here for people when they need help. Thank you!
