Hyatt Extreme Christmas understands that Hunger is not limited to a single demographic or geographic region of the country. It is not a problem only affecting the homeless or the poorest of the poor. Hunger is everywhere, and the numbers are staggering.
When most people think about hunger, they think of a starving child in a third-world country, or perhaps they think of a long line of homeless people waiting outside an inner-city soup kitchen.
The face of hunger has changed. No longer is it just the homeless man on the street reaching out for a helping hand, but every day millions of people are struggling to feed their families. No one is a stranger to the economic hardships of today.
As the economy continues to put a strain on our wallets, people are being forced to make extremely difficult decisions. What does hunger look like, you might ask?
- It is your father-in-law who just got laid off and now struggles to pay his mortgage and put food on the table.
- It is your elderly neighbor who must choose between buying groceries and getting their medicine.
- It is your child’s classmate who goes to school each day without lunch and is too embarrassed to ask for help.
When visiting Hyatt Extreme Christmas, please take a moment to look through your Kitchen Cabinets for non perishable food items that may be donated. Thank you everyone for helping us “Move for Hunger”.
