Jenny was very proud of the fact she’d always been able to take care of herself and her daughter and was reluctant to take help... but we were able to help her with the food and get her disaster aid to help her pay for home repairs.SarahRiver Bend Food Bank volunteer
I’d always been the one who was trying to help others through our church or other organizations. I had to swallow my pride and go ask for help myself.SusanRiver Bend Food Bank guest
