Renee's Boys Will Not Go to Bed Hungry Topnight

A Loving Mother Thanks You

“My husband lost his job because of COVID-19,” Renee shared recently. “And I have five boys. He was out of work for a year. And we had the kids home, seven days a week, three to five meals per day.”

Every day, lower-income parents like Renee are forced to make grueling decisions:

  • Find food for the day or transportation to work?
  • Pay for tonight’s dinner or tomorrow’s rent?

What would you do?
