Interfaith Sees Increase Of Families In Need
Tuolumne County residents hit by hard times can find help from Interfaith.
Cathie Peacock, Interfaith Executive Director, was Thursday’s KVML “Newsmaker of the Day”.
Interfaith provides free food, clothes, blankets, sleeping bags and basics household appliances to those who are in need.
According to Peacock, Interfaith is assisting at least one hundred more families per month than one year ago.
“If there has been a local economic improvement”, Peacock said, “it has not been reflected with the volume of people seeking and needing help and assistance”.
County residents must show a social security card or other legal form of identification in order to receive help.
“Emergency food, clothes, shoes and other items can be picked up once a month.” Peacock said. “Haircuts are also available and are offered free of charge to those in need.”
Interfaith is a faith based community social service agency that relies on donations from those who are more fortunate. Volunteers are also welcome.
Interfaith is located two miles north of the Junction Shopping Center up Tuolumne Road and then left on Striker Court. Hours are Monday through Friday from 10am to 1pm.
Call 532-0905 for more information.
The Newsmaker of the Day can be heard each weekday morning at 6:47, 7:47 and 8:47 on AM-1450 KVML.
