Uniting Hearts This Holiday Season
About the Event
The holidays are back, and for many, it's a time to be happy and joyous. While there is much to be thankful for, many who struggled before the pandemic are still facing hardship.
These individuals are our ALICE population. Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed (ALICE) households earn more than the Federal Poverty Level but less than the basic cost of living for the county (the ALICE Threshold). With half of Broward County residents struggling to meet their basic needs, our ALICE population often find themselves living paycheck to paycheck - one emergency away from financial distress.
In many cases, these individuals are your everyday store clerks, your children's teachers or even the first responders in your region.
Let's UNITE as a community and bring comfort and peace to those working hard but falling short – those who need a hand up, not a handout.
From Wednesday, December 1st through Friday, December 31st, we are launching our Uniting Hearts campaign to bring comfort and peace to those in need. As we countdown our final days until 2022, let's UNITE as a community and spread love and compassion for our neighbors in need.
Whose life will you change this holiday season?
