Entry #2 said: “I was excited for this challenge and was anticipating the joy a much needed family would have in receiving these items. However, I learned that sometimes the people who need the most are closest to you. I called my friend to see if she knew of a family that was in need. As hard as it was, she opened up to share just how difficult things were right now. I had already known that she was out of work for the summer, they were barely living on one paycheck, school starting up and that they were moving their oldest to college this weekend yet I did not know just how tight things really were. She humbly told me that her and her family could greatly benefit from this donation. After finding this out, it prompted me even more.
The first picture is all the food and toiletries that were given to the family, and the second picture is the look on their faces when they got them…priceless!
