For an abused and neglected child, Thanksgiving is important. You see, for many of the kids at CCHO, Thanksgiving used to be ‘just another day with no food on the table.’
But you can change that – and it starts with food. You can provide an entire day of food for just $6.93 this Thanksgiving!
Max has gone hungry too many times to count. His father used to take away his food as a form of punishment. Max lived in fear of making a mistake and having no food to eat. He has a hard time believing that anyone will make sure he has food and other basic needs.
But a child who gets the food he needs feels safe. Because he knows someone loves him enough to give him a day of good food. And you can do that for Max for just $6.93!
Your gift will help Max be safe and feel safe on Thanksgiving. Instead of feeling hungry, scared and lonely. Maybe for the first time ever.
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.
You can give Max an entire day of food for only $6.93! Your gift by November 23 will make sure Max gets the food he deserves this Thanksgiving.
You might wonder how a day’s worth of meals for a growing kid like Max with a healthy appetite only costs $6.93. State funding covers a portion of daily food expenses; your donation helps pay for the rest. Your part is crucial to ensuring Max gets the nutrition his developing body needs.
It’s so important that Max has access to nourishing meals. Children from abusive and neglectful homes are often left to fend for themselves at mealtime. Even during Thanksgiving.
Max struggles with intense emotions and behaviors. He’s often anxious and defiant – not knowing what might happen next. He desperately wants to feel safe and cared for. You can provide an entire day’s worth of food for only $6.93 for Max and other kids like him who are used to going hungry at Thanksgiving.
Max won’t have to worry about where that next meal will come from. Or if it will come at all. That’s how powerful your donation is!
