Crystal: Finding Blessings

At the beginning of 2020, everything was normal. Crystal was working at an Amazon warehouse full time, with her boyfriend and their 2 children.  Two boys, ages 1 and 2. Then, everything fell apart. In February her and her boyfriend split up for good. Crystal moved out on her own with her two boys, making it work. Then the lockdown happened. She got laid off at the end of May. Signing up for government aid would take weeks.

Originally, Crystal was looking for food for her stubborn grandpa, Sonny. He lives alone and is ill. She was on online and found us through Facebook Angels. Then she realized she could us the help as well. She’s a little stubborn, too, just like her grandpa. Finding IFCS has been a “blessing” and she has been to us 3 times, both for herself and her family.
