I was shocked to learn that nearly 70 MILLION Americans have lost their jobs and filed for unemployment since the pandemic began. That's FOUR IN TEN WORKING AMERICANS who have faced the fear and uncertainty of lost employment in the past 11 months. This past week resulted in another 793,000 filed FIRST-TIME unemployment claims.
The fact is, millions of Americans are still gripped in this national economic disaster. This month, Mercy Chefs is re-igniting our partnership in the U.S.D.A. Farmers to Families program to get even more meals to hurting families. Last week alone, we provided more than 370,000 meals. That total is increasing this week and next and could grow dramatically as we get ready to expand across the East Coast.
Simply put, WE NEED EVERY MERCY CHEFS FRIEND to stand with us right now to meet the urgent needs of families here at home. Please go here to make your best tax-deductible gift right now to help feed hurting families across America, and see below for more details.
Thanks in advance, and God bless!
P.S. A gift of $50 will help us feed 100 people; $75 helps feed 150 people, $100 will get a meal to 200 people. Perhaps you can do more -- $500 will provide 1,000 meals and $1,000 will help us distribute 2,000 meals. Every gift will help. Go here:
