A North Porch Story About Sharing
Today we got a visit from Samantha, a North Porch client with a 4-month old daughter. Ever since Samantha became a client she has been donating baby clothes that her daughter outgrows .
Samantha is a single mom that receives WIC vouchers. Oftentimes she ends up with extra baby formula which she then donates to us. Today was one of those days. It so happened that the formula she was donating was a formula brand that twin boys needed.
We immediately contacted the family to pick up the much needed formula. Samantha waited for the family so she could personally gift them the formula.
Each parent introduced their children and found out that all three babies had been born on the same day, June 24th! Samantha broke into tears overwhelmed with emotion. She was so happy to be a blessing to someone else in need.
This is the spirit of love and giving that we at the Triangle Park Community Center are a part of!
