DIY Volunteer Project - Thanksgiving 2021 Meal Kits

This month HandsOn Miami would like to help families experiencing economic hardship celebrate Thanksgiving through this Do It Yourself project. The recipient of the Hunger Action Totes will be The Tree of Life Parenting & Adolescents Center. The Tree of Life Center's mission is to empower women & teens with the tools necessary to thrive, overcome, and be successful in every stage of their lives. This month, they will be distributing dinner kits to over 400 families in advance of the Thanksgiving holiday.
Tree of Life Center offers services free of charge and ensures that quality information and direct services are provided. This has created a safe place for women & mothers without worrying about paying for services, needing legal status nor judgment. Many of their clients are in crisis - some are homeless, some are teenagers, some are fleeing from abusive situations, and many have already had children. Tree of Life works with the parents to hone their parenting skills, provide them with the tools they need to succeed, and assist them with everything from help finding housing to supplying diapers.
