COVID- Update from President and CEO

Dear Friends of Interfaith,

While crisis inherently incites fear of the unknown, I am always overwhelmed by the goodness of our community. You rise to the occasion despite the most difficult of circumstances and give with your heart, allowing Interfaith to serve our neighbors in need, with groceries from our Food Pantry and financial assistance to help with a portion of rent, mortgage, or utility bills.

During the month of March, your gifts allowed Interfaith to:

  • Serve 3,132 individuals through our Food Pantry; a 100% increase over March 2019
  • Provide crisis assistance to 1,853 individuals; a 30% increase over March 2019
  • Care for our Senior neighbors, increasing their grocery deliveries from monthly to weekly, as requested the need increases, Interfaith pledges to continue our weekly curbside Food Pantry distribution, feeding all families who ask for help.

Additionally, crisis assistance is provided all day, every day, by telephone. The COVID-19 global pandemic has changed our world in ways we never expected, but through it all, the spirit of our community remains strong.

Thank you for helping us fulfill our 46-year mission of building a more loving and caring community through service. I am humbled to serve alongside you and am deeply grateful for your steadfast generosity.

Thank you,
Missy Herndon
Interfaith President & CEO

Help Us Serve Home bound Seniors and Families in Crisis.

Dear Neighbor,
We are in unprecedented times, so forgive us as messaging and activities are continuing to evolve as we work hard to assess and meet community needs while still working very hard to keep our staff, clients and customers as healthy as possible.
Our goal is to continue to serve our neighbors in need to the best of our ability.
Interfaith is continuing:
  • Senior Grocery Delivery, moving it from monthly to weekly
  • Crisis assistance services (i.e. rent, mortgage, utilities, gas vouchers, and prescription assistance) for Seniors and Families
  • Food Pantry Assistance for families includes three Food Bags filled with groceries for 5 meals, plus snacks, toilet paper and baby goods if needed. Bags are distributed by driving through our parking lot.

Our biggest need in the coming weeks is funding to purchase specific and essential foods, toiletries and paper goods in bulk from local grocery stores and The Food Bank. This funding ensures we are able to meet the community’s current food needs, as well as providing financial assistance to families and Seniors who are experiencing wage loss or additional crisis as related to business and school closures.

Donations to these efforts can be made here.

In the days and weeks ahead, we anticipate an increased need as our community responds to the Pandemic. Just as we have for nearly 47 years, Interfaith plans to walk alongside our neighbors in need. We are able to do that with your partnership and support.
Thank you for caring, stay safe, and healthy.
