“As a veteran, it’s really tough to ask for help,” shared Jim. “My time in the service taught me to be independent. I was ashamed to admit that I couldn’t make it on my own.”
Jim, like many of our Northland veterans, find it difficult to ask for assistance when times are tight. But when they do, your support allows us to provide nutritious food through our Food Shelf, our Nutrition Assistance Program for Seniors (NAPS) and network of NE Minnesota and NW Wisconsin agency partners – feeding thousands of veterans in need.
“I’m not sure I’d be as confident about the future without the food shelf’s support,” he shared. “To me, the people there are angels, and I can’t thank them enough for everything they do.”
