We are entering the "season of light." For centuries, people who live in the northern hemisphere, distant from the tropics, have tried to bring as much light as they can into the darkness of winter. We light candles, build bonfires, stoke fireplaces, set off fireworks. It's fitting that as we try to push back the darkness of the physical world, we also take this time to push back the darkness of the spiritual world.
Life can be very hard sometimes, and harder for some than for others. At Bread of Life, we see those who have no home wandering in the park or sleeping against a building. We see those who have threadbare coats and no gloves shivering in the cold. We see those who lack food pondering in the supermarket over whether they should buy the cut of meat or the fresh vegetables for their family since they can't afford both.
At Bread of Life, YOU help us push back against the darkness year-round. Our communities of volunteers and donors have hearts and minds that are softened toward those who are suffering, and hands and feet ready to act. You are the power behind our food pantries, Everett Mobile Market, Everett Backpack Nutrition Project, Grocery Delivery Program, Evening Meals, Motel Outreach and our clothing, toiletry and blanket distribution. You light the way for neighbors in our community.
Thank you for considering a donation to Bread of Life. With your continued support, you enable Bread of Life to serve over one million meals to families and children.
Thank you for shining your light into the darkness for those who are low-income, hungry and homeless.
