The Lord is my Help receives $2,000 grant

The Kindred Institute of Inclusion and Equity, an initiative of Kindred Health Care, awarded a grant of $2,000 to the Lord is my Help.

The Lord is my Help is a not-for-profit based in Ocean Springs that provides assistance to families in need in the area.

Their services include hot meals served daily, a food pantry, and grocery assistance for families in need and meal deliveries to the ill, home bound, and veterans in the community.

The Lord is my Help Board President Susannah Snyder tells News 25 this grant is going to help them to keep serving the community.  “You know we are pretty busy here every day and we are so proud that we did not miss a single day due to COVID. Of course, we have made adjustments and we had to make changes with how we offer our services. We have two employees otherwise everyone else is volunteers here. All of them, they were just very adamant that they wanted to stay here. This is where they were supposed to be helping feed people and it’s really great to be able to let the community know that we are offering so many services here.”

The Lord is my Help is one of several not-for-profits across the country receiving grants from the Kindred Institute of Inclusion and Equity, a fund established in 2020.
