You Ease Burdens for Local Family

Patty and her family have faced hurdle after hurdle over the past few years, but your generosity shines as a beacon of hope in the midst of their darkest days.

Patty is all smiles while picking up groceries from the North Texas Food Pantry, a partner agency of the Food Bank.

We met Patty as she picked up groceries on her first visit to the North Texas Food Pantry, a partner agency of the Wichita Falls Area Food Bank.

Patty shares that she was a certified nursing assistant before suffering a heart attack many years ago. Since then, her only income was Social Security disability assistance while her husband, Clarence, worked to support the family.

But recently, Clarence fell on the job and hurt his back. He hasn’t been able to work ever since, and his unemployment benef

its are about to run out.

Patty says she cares for her 26-year-old son, who is on the Autism spectrum, and also her middle brother who has a traumatic brain injury. Her oldest brother, Donnie, is currently in hospice care.

“The past few years have been tough,” she says, tears rolling down her face.

On top of all of this, the sewer line recently ruptured under the family’s house. Thankfully, they have help to make the repairs, but Patty and her husband will need to pay for parts. That’s why she sought out the food pantry.

“You don’t realize how much this helps,” Patty says, with sincere gratitude for the food you’ve provided for her family.
