“Providing for her is my first priority,” Margaret says of her 11-year-old granddaughter, who she’s raising in Columbia. “We’re just so fortunate and grateful that people are willing to help us.”
We met Margaret and her sister Catherine at a drive-thru, no-contact food distribution at Spring Hill High School. Both women have retired after working more than 30 years at the GM plant in Spring Hill.
Now in their golden years, the sisters are having a hard time affording their monthly expenses on fixed incomes.
“With COVID-19, food prices have really gone up,” Catherine says. “This puts food on the table.”
She’s living in Antioch with her brother and his grandson and learned about The Well’s Mobile Pantry from their church. Catherine says the food means she’s able to keep up with bills without having to sacrifice meals.
So many older adults have a hard time affording groceries on limited budgets. Your support helps immensely — especially during the holidays.
“This just makes a big difference when you’re struggling,” Margaret says. “Just a little help can mean a whole lot when you need it.”
“We appreciate this whole-heartedly!” Catherine adds.
Thank you for sharing hope with families at this critical time!
