When we sat down to tally up the number of families and individuals that LSSN served during the month of May, we were astonished. In total, we had provided 1,880 families and over 6,900 individuals with food, including meat, dairy, eggs, produce, and bread – over five times the number of families that we served in a month prior to COVID-19.
Four months ago, we never would have been able to imagine serving so many families and individuals in a single month, let alone serving that number for two months in a row. So far our DigiMart Distributions have provided food for 4,498 families and 15,850 individuals — including 6,620 adults, 5,060 children, and nearly 3,000 seniors — since March 16th alone.
As we head into June and our city begins to reopen, LSSN will continue to serve and care for our community through our DigiMart Distributions, Family Empowerment Services, Senior Supportive Services, and more. The love, generosity, and support of our community have sustained our organization as we have responded to the COVID-19 pandemic, and we feel blessed to begin looking towards the future together with you.
