Answer Joey's prayer for Thanksgiving. His hope is in your hands.

Posted on November 2, 2016

Feed a hungry child this Thanksgiving for $1.96

This Thanksgiving, you can do something BIG to fight hunger in Tampa Bay —especially for children like Joey in this video.

You can feed hungry children and their families this Thanksgiving for just $1.96 per meal.

Won’t you give a gift today? The families coming to us this Thanksgiving have exhausted all of their options. Many are living in day-to-day crisis mode: without regular meals, without a decent paying job…maybe without a roof over their heads. You are their last hope.

We’re expecting to provide 205,638 meals over the next two months and we can’t do it without your help.

Do you know how far your gift can go this Thanksgiving? For only $19.60, you can feed 10 hungry men, women and children right here in Tampa Bay.

This is urgent! Thanksgiving is almost here. Please give a gift right now, while there’s still time to make an impact.  Your gift is more than a meal … it is a renewed sense of hope for a family who is desperately hurting.

Please give your most generous gift today. And make your own Thanksgiving even more meaningful, knowing that you’ve helped children like Joey and their families.

Thank you, God bless you, and please share this message with a friend.

Help children like Joey

Hope can go even further when you share this with your friends and family.


Give to provide meals, shelter & vital programing.
