“Dad, what would you like for Father’s Day?”

Nothing is more hurtful to a father than to realize that despite his best efforts his kids are still going hungry - that he can’t provide for their basic needs. Many unemployed fathers are desperately trying to feed families, keep kids in school, keep a roof over their heads. 

Through the help of relatives and friends, some manage for awhile but the unemployment checks stop and even harder choices have to be made. Do I feed my kids or fill their prescription?

The strongest predictor of depression in dads is unemployment - jobless dads are 6.5 times more likely to be depressed. 

Many are just not that desperate as yet but are on the verge. A large percentage of the people we help with monthly and emergency food distribution own or rent their own home. They aren’t sleeping in cars or in the woods and many have at least a part-time job. It’s just that in these economic hard times they can no longer afford the little extras and instead are having to dig down a bit harder than usual just to pay the bills.

My Dad would Settle for a Job this       Father’s Day!”

Governmental agencies are a very small part of the solution but are often hobbled by conflicting political agendas. You and I may not be actually able to give a job to an employed person here along the Grand Strand but we can help by helping local non-governmental agencies whose business it is to help the needy.

Non-profits such as Coastal Rescue Mission, depend on the generosity of private citizens like you, to help fund programs for the hungry and homeless in America! Here in the Low Country where the economic climate has taken it’s toll through every strata of our citizenry, we at Coastal Rescue Mission are also hard hit. We don’t accept government funding yet the increase in food demand has come up against the decrease in everyone’s ability to give. 

We plead with you to please continue to contribute as you can. 

Thank you, and may God bless you!
