Within the stresses of day to day life, it is easy for those of us with jobs to forget just how this recessed economy has placed so many families in a dire situation. Did you realize that in the Greenville area alone there are 22,000 people without jobs and another 68,000 living below the poverty level?
While there are many charities that attempt to help families in our area, I, Josh Christian, had the opportunity to visit and tour one said charity, Harvest Hope of Greenville, SC; a food bank that provides meals and food to multitudes of families not only in our area but throughout SC. As I was touring Harvest Hope it impressed upon me just how in need our society and community are with people suffering in these difficult economic times. Without the assistance from charities such as Harvest Hope many children would go home from school without any further meals for the day.
Harvest Hope is a great opportunity for people to support their communities and lend a helping hand to others. We encourage you to support Harvest Hope as well as your local ministries and help those less fortunate.
