Justin dropped by the Kelowna Food Bank today just to say thanks. He is a single dad working three jobs while caring for his four-year-old son. He recently earned his Community Support Worker Diploma from Vancouver Career College and is working at both the Bridge Family Services and the Pathways Abilities Society.
Now he is helping others.
“Last year, I was in school full-time,” he says. “Knowing we had good food in the house took most of the pressure off. The snack packs were very helpful giving Jayden something tasty and nutritious to enjoy at daycare. But it was more than the food; it was the little things like the friendly people who kept us going.”
Justin admits that it’s still tough, but he is making ends meet. He delivers pizza on the weekends for extra income.
“God bless the Food Bank and everyone who donates. Merry Christmas Kelowna.”
