Over 3 million Florida residents are living with the effects of poverty, hunger, or homelessness, including more than one in five children throughout the state.
Our agency is heartbroken that so many families in our state are living in poverty, hunger, and hopelessness. We refuse to stand by and let this continue, so we are launching a campaign to end hunger, poverty, and homelessness in Marion County. “Our goals are to eradicate the effects of poverty here in our local community. We’re using an invitation and rewards program to encourage other families in our area to get involved, and we are grateful to have seen so many positive responses,” said agency owner and CEO Kevin McDonald.
