HELPING FEED 1,000 FAMILIES in SANTA ANA

July 29, 2013

COME HELP US FEED 1,000 FAMILIES IN SANTA ANA

Mike Dalati and Karina Onofre with “OC Latino Outreach,” will be helping “OFFICIAL NO ONE LEFT BEHIND” organization hand out boxes of food filled with cereal, grains, fresh fruits, canned goods, and more to 1,000 local families in the City of Santa Ana!!!! The boxes are free but the organization is accepting $1 donation per box. With so many horrific things going on all over the world, it’s easy to forget the unfortunate things that are taking place right in our own backyard.. http://www.officialnooneleftbehind.org/About_Us.html  

How is poverty even an issue in opulent Orange County??? This is a normal question somebody would ask, especially if he or she lives along the coast or away from the heart of the county. The fact of the matter is that reality is truly “A Tale of Two Counties” like 89.3 FM KPPC and Anaheim Mayor, Tom Tait, reported, where we have about half of Orange County students living with families whose household annual income is below  $40,000 for a family of four. In the City of Santa Ana, the county seat and beating heart of OC, 20% of its residents are below the poverty level of $22,000 a year for a family of four! It’s really sad and sickening to understand. But it is a fact, and these families could use some help -to make their lives a bit easier, and help make the children’s lives better -as many are struggling with their education since not having proper nutrition affects them.

Orange County is not the best place to be poor -as a person making minimum wage $8/hr FT only makes about $1000 a month after taxes and the cost of living is so high. He or she would need to have 2 FT jobs to make the payment of a typical 1 bedroom apartment, pay the bills, pay for gas, cell phone, internet, insurance, and food! This is without taking into consideration miscellaneuous expenses, medical needs, (shopping?), and the current economy.
 
 
Please help us out BY SPREADING THE WORD or VOLUNTEERING TO HELP DISTRIBUTE THE 1,000 BOXES on WEDNESDAY AUGUST 21, from 10AM to 2PM.  COME SHARE YOUR TIME, SHARE YOUR RESOURCES, ANYWAY YOU CAN. BUT AS A COMMUNITY, WE NEED TO HELP!!!!
