Just ask Yvonne Dixson of Milwaukee. Her grandchildren depend on her and she shared that money is tight.
When Yvonne and her five grandchildren came together to pick up their groceries at last year Family to Family event, she was overjoyed.
“It’s wonderful,” said Yvonne. “It allows us to have a real Thanksgiving together.”
“When people are facing challenging times, they’re often times stressed, and shopping for a holiday meal may be one of the last things they have time or money to do,” said Jane Pirsig-Anderson of Aurora Family Service. “That’s why for 20 years, more families have turned to Aurora Family Service to help provide the groceries for a holiday meal, so they don’t have to worry about getting the ingredients and can focus more on celebrating being together as a family… being able to make a holiday meal together and strengthening family bonds.”
