Carole Jambarad-Sweet on Not Having Enough

Carole Jambarad-Sweet - Toledo, Ohio

Carole volunteers in a food pantry twice a week. She shares a story of how one day a mother came in to the food pantry with a three year old child. As the mother put food into basket the little boy was saying, "Milk- mama- milk! Please milk- we have no milk!" She shares how it broke her heart that this tiny kid was crying out for milk, not cookies or ice cream, but milk which he needed but didn't have.

Carole shares how this child has made her want to work the rest of her life helping the people who don't have enough.
