Homelessness and hunger can happen to anyone. Trevor is proof of that. He’s an electrician and does remodeling work, but all of a sudden his work dried up.
“Right now, I’m in between jobs,” he said. His last steady job required him to scramble up tall poles with spikes in his shoes to hang power lines. “It’s risky working around 60,000 volts,” Trevor said.
His Greatest Fear
Trevor’s fear of being electrocuted while at work was nothing compared to the panic he felt when he was laid off right before Christmas. Without the income from his job, he didn’t have any way to feed his family.
Fortunately, Trevor heard about Cityteam. It’s a 30-minute bus ride and asking for help is hard, but he is so grateful.
“When I’m desperate like this, I’ll do anything to make sure my kids eat,” he said as he waited for a box of food.
“I can’t let them go hungry out of pride. ‘Feed your kids first,’ that’s what I believe.”
With more neighbors like this who are struggling to cover their food costs, your gifts are critical for hard-working people like Trevor who are trying to feed their families. Without Cityteam and your support, many of these people wouldn’t eat at all.
