Mark’s Story – Holiday Hope

Janie Gianotsos Faces of Hunger, Newsy

Mark-11-14 2Mark volunteers at FBR’s Denver warehouse.  He shared with us that just last winter, his family needed food assistance.  His story is a great example of why our staff comes to work every day and how contributions to FBR truly change lives.

After a serious car accident, Mark found himself unable to work.  His family couldn’t make ends meet on his wife’s nursing salary alone.  With mounting health bills, hungry children to feed and winter’s utility bills filling the mailbox, they knew they needed to find help. And help came in the form of food from Food Bank of the Rockies. That nourishment provided not only peace of mind, but also a chance for the family to get back on their feet without going hungry.

Mark believes people should give back to each other and that’s why he’s sharing his time volunteering in our warehouse.  We’re glad Mark’s story has a happy ending and grateful to all who help us by giving time, food and funds.  1 in 7 Coloradans are going through struggles similar to Mark’s and worry where they’ll find their next meal. Your gifts make more of a difference than you could imagine to hungry men, women and children in our community.

Thank you for your support! Together we can solve hunger.
