Thanksgiving can be one of the most memorable days of the year. But for many children who come from abusive and neglectful homes, it’s just another day with no food on the table.
These kids go to bed hungry most nights and wake up wondering if they will have anything to eat that day. Worrying about food causes many of them to binge or hoard the food they do find. They believe it’s the only way they won’t go hungry later.
But this Thanksgiving, you can provide one child an entire day full of healthy meals for just $6.93! That means your $49 donation by November 24 would provide one young boy or girl a week’s worth of filling meals during the Thanksgiving season!
It’s so important that each child has access to nourishing meals each day. When children don’t know where their next meal will come from, they have a hard time believing that anyone will provide for their most basic needs. Meaning a hungry kid is often a kid who feels unworthy of being loved.
But you can do something about that! Your loving donation by Thanksgiving – November 24 – will provide three filling and delicious meals each day to a child who is used to going hungry this time of year. That’s how powerful your donation is!
Give a meal to a child by Thanksgiving!
Christian Children's Home of Ohio (CCHO) is a local nonprofit organization that has provided opportunities for donors like you to help abused and neglected children for more than 50 years. Based in Wooster, OH and serving all of Ohio – including Wayne County, Summit County, Stark County, Cuyahoga County, Franklin County and the surrounding areas – CCHO is a safe place for kids who have suffered extreme forms of physical abuse, sexual abuse and emotional abuse, as well as survivors of sex trafficking. Initially licensed as a foster care/group home for children, CCHO now has five cottages on its campus that are home to as many as 46 kids, ages 6-17, who have often been abused by parents or other people they trust. During their time with this faith-based charity in Ohio, children learn the tools they need to overcome the trauma they've experienced through various forms of therapeutic approaches (including recreational therapy, art therapy and equine therapy) as well as social, spiritual and educational opportunities designed to aid the child with the healing process, model for them how a healthy family functions, develop coping and life skills, and introduce them to Jesus Christ.
