“People need help right now. …Tomorrow is Too late for some people.”

Last December, Sheila, a compassionate nurse dedicated to providing in-home care, faced a sudden and life-altering event when she slipped on black ice. The resulting injuries meant she could no longer work, unraveling the stability she had painstakingly built as a single parent.

“It was devastating because everything I had built up, it was just gone,” Sheila shared. “We lost our house. I’m still trying to get back on my feet.”

Shelia turned to the Food Bank of South Jersey’s network of compassionate partners for support and crucial resources.

“The food program in South Jersey has been a blessing. If I went there today, they would give me food and say, ‘We’re gonna be here for you.’”

Since we last met with Sheila, she has found a new place to call home, and we are just so grateful our community was able to support her on her journey.
