North Texas Giving Day
A mother struggling to feed her family. A middle-aged man seeking assistance for the first time. A family desperate for rental assistance. An unemployed laborer trying to find work. They are among the faces of the pandemic and economic crisis that have created a need like we’ve never seen. People are hurting. In their search for relief, thousands come to Christian Community Action (CCA) each week for food and financial assistance.
Emergency assistance is available to those who qualify.
“My husband got laid off and I only make $2,000 per month and we are a family of six,” said a woman to a CCA Case Manager. “It’s tough to have enough to eat sometimes, but by God’s will and CCA, we will keep going.”
Since March, we have been able to respond to the increased calls for help because of the generosity of donors to our COVID-19 response. In moments of caring, supporters have given generously, along with a host of food pantry items, personal protective equipment and cleaning supplies.
Our community’s support to CCA allowed us to respond quickly and effectively to this historic challenge while we simultaneously work to sustain our ongoing operations. From March through July 2020:
As we remain committed to this promise, we need your help.
There is no foreseeable end to the suffering. Our emergency relief funds are being exhausted by the extraordinary day-in, day-out requests for assistance.
“Thank you so much for what you are doing for the community,” said one person who drove through the food pantry line to receive a package of groceries. “I lost my job months ago, and my family has no income right now. Thank you for being there for us during this time. What you do is so important.”
Please consider making a gift today to address the anguish that has accompanied the pandemic. Help us continue to be there for our community during this difficult time. You may give online here on our website, or give through North Texas Giving Day.
