Americans are suffering with costs of everyday goods increasing. Americans Helping Americans addresses this issue by providing items often taken for granted. We distribute coats and blankets for enduring the harsh Appalachian winters. Proper footwear for students so their feet are protected and they can do the activities they want. Food boxes so that 10,000 families can supplement their nutrition needs. Also, dental kits to help the children practice correct oral hygiene.
Grants are also provided to our partners in Appalachian, local leaders and organizations that wish to help their neighbors to provide assistance for utility bills. Often times landlords evict renters for delinquent utility payments which can snowball a family into living on the streets. Americans with oxygen machines also rely on electricity to live and we make sure we can assist those people.
