Hunger Center Grateful for Community Support
It’s now been over two months since we first got word that Covid-19 was officially in our world. In that time, we have all become “experts” on hand washing, mask making, social distancing, disinfecting and other practices we never even considered in the old days. At the same time, we have seen the devastating effects of the virus on our economy. So many Euclid residents have been struggling with job loss or reduced work hours, while trying to feed their children and often other family members as well. Through it all, the Euclid Hunger Center has remained open, giving food assistance to anyone who has asked.
We haven’t done it alone, however. Our Euclid community has stepped up in amazing ways to serve their neighbors in need. Whether by giving financial donations, donating food, packing bags, delivering food to the elderly, or picking up food for a neighbor or family member, our supporters have truly been living out our motto of “Neighbors Helping Neighbors.” We are extremely grateful for the support given to the Hunger Center during this unsettled time.
The Covid-19 pandemic will likely be with us for a while, and it will take some time for our economy to get back to even a semblance of normalcy. As a result, the Hunger Center anticipates a much higher volume of visitors for the foreseeable future. With your continued help, though, we will remain steadfast in our commitment to providing food assistance to those who need it, for as long as they need it.
I am the Manager of the Euclid Hunger Center and a 22 year resident of Euclid.
