From Travis’ Desk: Bridges To A Brighter Future

June 1, 2018
Dear Friends, I’ve been thinking a lot lately about Golden Harvest’s 2018 goal to IMPACT our community. When I think about impact, it goes beyond just one meal or one moment in time. Impact means making a lasting change in the life of someone in need.

One of the ways we can make the greatest impact is by offering help and hope to children who are struggling with hunger. Life is just beginning for these children as they are being formed into people they will be as adults.

Yet 1 in every 4 children in our area struggles with hunger. Without enough to eat, these children can’t build healthy bodies and minds. They can’t excel in school or social situations. And they don’t feel secure, safe, and cared for.

If you want to make a lasting impact, consider giving to support our BackPack Program. The BackPack Program provides weekend food to children who struggle to get enough to eat. Of the 4,5000 children we serve through this program, about 800 are still unfunded for the next school year.

Thank you for helping to build bridges to a brighter future for our local children and make a lasting impact, one child at a time. We are so thankful for all the ways you are ‘feeding lives together’ with us.
