During what may well be the biggest health crisis seen across multiple generations, the people of Clinton proved that in the darkest times, there is light. Your generous donations have allowed Families Helping Families to directly assist our local organizations by providing non-perishable goods at a time when those are so scarce, especially for many whose resources have been negatively impacted.
Families Helping Families has developed a trusted partnership with Carbonella & Desarbo Inc. of Branford as a source for quality foods at prices that allow your donated dollars to be stretched. Typically, we source many of the fresh food items donated to the Food Pantry and other events from Carbonella & Desarbo but given the recent change in need, we were able to purchase our first bulk order of non-perishable items.
Please remember we could not have done this without you!
These charts illustrate how we at Families Helping Families use your donations to better the lives of those in our community.
Since the pandemic hit, we've donated 321,562 pounds (that's over 133 TONS!!!) of fresh produce, non-perishable food, and personal care items that have provided relief for 198,663 community members.
