Family first

by Brittney Howell

ChicagoEdgara nd Maria are married and have 4 children but have recently become of family of
10. Edgar’s brother and sister-in-law have had drug addictions which have made their home a
hostile environment for their children. Edgar and Maria agreed to welcome their nieces and nephews
into their home as a temporary safe haven.
While Edgar is employed full-time, the needs of the additional children proved to be a
financial strain on the family. Our local partners have been able to begin bringing Food Paks, which has helped the family and the children to meet a real need in a serious family crisis.
Edgar has begun participating in community groups and has a desire to serve and give back to the
community. Our local partners have been able to make a marked difference
in the life of family during a season of great trauma.

41,667 meals were distributed in the Midwest during the fourth quarter of 2013.

Remember, 100 percent of all donations made to the USANA True Health Foundation ALWAYS go toward changing lives across the world.
