Each year, the Hunger and Health Coalition in Boone connects community members with families in need for the holidays. People in the community select a participating family, purchase gifts and food for the family.
Compton Fortuna, executive director of the Hunger Coalition, reports as of Monday afternoon all families participating in the Sharing Tree program have been adopted. Adopted families receive gift cards to obtain food for the holiday, and also receive assistance in providing gifts to their children. Visit www.hungercoalition.com for more information on the Sharing Tree.
The mission of the Hunger and Health Coalition is to relieve poverty and hunger in a compassionate manner for families and individuals who are experiencing economic hardship and food shortages.
This assistance may include food, medicine, and referrals to other community resources. The Hunger and Health Coalition meets emergency needs while acting as a community resource assisting those in need to find a more permanent solution.
