Taylen: Previous Donor, Now Participant

Growing up, Taylen remembers his family would sponsor 2-3 families for IFCS’ Holiday Program. For him, coming to IFCS for help during the COVID-19 crisis is “amazing that it’s come full circle.” Taylen is home-schooling his 2nd grader, Jude. While his girlfriend, Natalie, is working at her essential warehouse position, Taylen has taken on the home care role while looking for work. He used to work full time at an ice cream parlor that had to lay him off when the pandemic began. For his birthday this year, he created a Facebook Fundraiser for IFCS! His message for folks right now is, “Come back to community, tribe & each other with love.”
