American families are falling through the cracks.
Your gift delivers essentials like brand-new clothing, blankets, personal care items — even toys. And thanks to donations from clothing manufacturers, a gift that would normally help one child will now help five.
One in five children in the United States lives in a family struggling with poverty. As safety networks fray, World Vision and its community partners are working tirelessly to help ensure children and families in the United States receive the basics they need to get back on their feet.
Your donation will help deliver top-quality donated products to struggling American families and single mothers like Mary. To escape her violent and abusive husband, Mary fled with her three children and sought refuge at a World Vision-supported homeless shelter.
At the shelter, Mary and her children received medical supplies, hygiene products, and more, donated through World Vision. “I feel special,” said Mary when she received these basics. “I feel appreciated.”
Mary’s son also receives play therapy at the shelter, using arts and craft supplies donated through World Vision. The therapy is especially important, since Mary’s son has been diagnosed with autism.
In response to the help she’s received, Mary is reaching out to others in need by volunteering at a nearby soup kitchen. “I like to help,” she says. “I like to give back.” Her efforts prove that despite the homelessness and abuse she’s faced, this single mother has found the courage to begin putting her life back together.
You can help more hardworking Americans like Mary with your gift today!
Increase your impact even more by giving monthly or yearly to the Poverty in America Fund.
- You will be joining a special group of supporters who are the heart of our ministry. They help us to continue our crucial work and plan for the ever-changing needs of the vulnerable children and communities we serve.
Your gift is a sacred trust. We promise to honor your generosity and use your donation in the most effective way possible. The gift options shown reflect World Vision projects and the suggested donation amounts are based on periodic surveys of the countries we serve. Each item is representative of the gift category in which it appears, and donations will be used to provide assistance within that gift category where it is needed most. When you give any animal gift, a portion of the gift may also help provide watering sources, farming assistance, hunger relief, and other related essentials as needed.
The multiplying effect from grants and donated goods may change throughout the year on identical or similar offers due to variations in the start and end dates of donor grants and our programs.
