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!
Alex has gone hungry too many times to count. He hasn’t known where his next meal will come from. He has a hard time believing that anyone will make sure he has food and other basic needs. Alex often feels unworthy of being loved.
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 Alex just $6.93!
Your gift will help Alex 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 Alex an entire day of food for only $6.93! Your gift by November 24 will make sure Alex gets the food he deserves this Thanksgiving.
You might wonder how a day’s worth of meals for a growing kid like Alex 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 Alex gets the nutrition his developing body needs.
It’s so important that Alex has access to nourishing meals. Children from abusive and neglectful homes are often left to fend for themselves at mealtime. Even during Thanksgiving.
Alex struggles with intense emotions and behaviors. He’s often anxious and defiant – not knowing what might happen next. He desperately wants to just be okay. You can provide an entire day’s worth of food for only $6.93 for Alex and other kids like him who are used to going hungry at Thanksgiving.
Alex 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!
