#GivingTuesday Empty Plate Stories: Meet Luis

Posted on November 24, 2017

When Luis' dad abandoned them, his mom struggled to provide enough food for him and his brother.

For weeks, they lived off of cheap bulk items like eggs and ramen noodles. But with Thanksgiving drawing near, Louis worried his mom might not be able to afford a holiday dinner for them.

“Everybody needs help once in a while,” he remembers his mom said.

With support from Metropolitan Ministries, Luis was able to enjoy a Thanksgiving dinner with his mom and brother. 

This #GivingTuesday you can help twice as many families, like Luis's,  with our Matching Grant – your gift will be matched up to $50K. 

When you give to Metropolitan Ministries on #GivingTuesday, you are not only giving the gift of providing a meal but also giving the gift of HOPE. Thank you for caring.
