Americans Helping Americans® thanks our supporters for standing with us right now

March 24, 2020

During this turbulent time, we want to let you know how much we truly appreciate your support of Americans Helping Americans®.

Over the past few weeks, we’ve reached out to our partner organizations and even though meeting their needs has become more challenging, many of them have actually increased their workloads to help their individual communities.

This has meant extending the hours of their food pantries, delivering food and other household goods to their neighbors (especially to the elderly and disabled), and sharing messages of hope and togetherness on social media.

As scary as this time is for all of us, and despite our worry over how families will get through this, we’re content in the knowledge that we’re all in this together and we will get through this.

Among them is one of our newest partners, 5 Loaves & 2 Fishes in Welch, West Virginia, which has extended its capacity to serve more families in their distressed community, and particularly children who are not getting free meals while schools are closed indefinitely throughout the state.

They are taking ‘call-ins’ now to adhere to strict social distancing rules. Appointments are made throughout the day for residents to arrive and get their meal boxes that have been reserved.

Americans are sticking together, and in many cases, going above and beyond the call of duty just to help.

All of us are working to ensure that the needs of Appalachian families are met, and it’s only through your continuing support that this has been made possible.

From all of us at Americans Helping Americans®, thank you for standing with us.
