This summer I spent in service with an Americorps hunger relief program in rural Tennessee.
Along with lunches provided to the children by my other amazing team members I delivered over 17,000 pounds of fresh fruits and veggies to the children and their families. It was so amazing. To help understand the struggles faced by the people we serve our pay is based on the poverty rate in that area. My pay was 740 a month for the summer. I burned through my savings to do the work it was so needed and such a wonderful opportunity. I am blessed to have been offered other service opportunities but need help as they all require me to relocate and I just don’t have the funds to do it. I have opportunities in South Carolina working to help people transition off of assistance to being financially stable. In Nebraska to work with conservation efforts to bring jobs to rural Nebraska and help a town reach its goal of 100% renewable energy sources. One in the western United States working with Native American Tribes on hunger relief and food sovereignty. If you can help I have set up a go fund me page for donations to help with moving costs, renting a new place, and getting utilities turned on. I have worked most of my life in service to and helping others it is my passion. My heart goes out to people in need and I have worked to help Native peoples and rural people in Montana and rural groups in Tennessee and many places in between. I hate asking for help for myself but if you can please click on the link below out of darkness to hope. outofdarknesstohope
