Give a Gift that Keeps on Giving this Holiday Season

COCONUT CREEK, Fla. (Oct. 10, 2017)  Food For The Poor's gift catalog is filled with unique gift ideas that will change lives and continue to provide comfort and joy long after Christmas has passed.

The heartfelt gifts epitomize the spirit of giving.

For $14.60, you can feed a family for a month, ensuring nutritious food for hungry children.

A gift of a kerosene stove for $8 not only offers a poor family a way to cook but also prevents trees from being cut down for firewood in countries in Latin America and the Caribbean where deforestation plagues many poor communities.

Across Latin America and the Caribbean, Food For The Poor remains committed to investing in water projects. A gift of $285 installs a water pump and $6,750 will drill and install a well.

"What we can easily access with the twist of a tap is considered a precious gift by the poorest of the poor," said Food For The Poor Executive Director Angel Aloma. "Your Christmas gift to provide clean water will help answer the prayers of villagers who desperately need this lifesaving resource."

For $100, you can provide a computer work station that opens doors to another world for a child living in poverty, and better equips them to further their education and become competitive in the workforce. And for $240, you can provide a beehive that supplies a poor family with a source of income. For poor families without access to refrigeration, honey is a blessing because it never spoils.

Or, you can even choose to give farm animals such as chickens, pigs, goats, donkeys and cows to provide a source of nutrition and an income for destitute families. For $90, you can give a goat that provides families with nutritious protein and a chance to break the cycle of poverty.

Bibles are often a family's most cherished possession. But many of the poor cannot read. A gift of an audio Bible for $7.50 will help a poor family develop a deeper understanding of God's Word.

For 35 years, Food For The Poor has provided the destitute with the basic necessities in life, such as food, water and housing. The charity also is committed to breaking the cycle of poverty by providing children with an opportunity to get an education by building schools and providing micro-enterprise opportunities for adults to earn an income.

Your tax-deductible gift this holiday season will be used to further enhance these Food For The Poor projects. The 2017 Christmas Gift Catalog can be accessed through the charity's secure website at www.FoodForThePoor.org/giftcatalog.
