You Support Amelia’s Health
For Amelia, the people of Jacksboro aren’t just neighbors — they are family. It’s a family she gladly helps care for as she is able, and one that in turn has helped care for her.
Amelia, 74, made the community her home after first moving to help take care of her son and her mother when they both became very ill. Amelia’s husband passed away in 2000.
Amelia’s mother has since passed away, and she currently rents a home with her son and his girlfriend, and helps care for her two grandchildren, ages 11 and 12.
When Amelia’s family needs food, she’s grateful she can turn to the Jacksboro Community Food Pantry, a partner agency of the Food Bank. When possible, Amelia likes to share any extra food she receives with people in their rural community.
“It’s hard to live in a rural area,” Amelia says sympathetically.
Amelia is retired, an
d she relies on her Social Security retirement benefits to get by. She has congestive heart failure, so healthy food has become even more essential for her health.
That’s why Amelia has special words of thanks for friends like you who help make nutritious food accessible for her and her family.
“You’re a lifesaver,” she says to donors like you.
Thank you for joining with the Food Bank to make sure our neighbors of all ages have vital access to healthy meals and groceries!
