It may sound like a simple thing…. to be able to share a birthday cake with your child, but when you fall on hard times, and can’t afford a cake, it means everything. Parents (pictured below) came to JFS Orlando for food to feed their family. Their daughter just turned 10, a milestone to a young person. Double digits! But they could not afford a birthday cake to celebrate. Not only was JFS able to provide food for the whole family for a whole week and a birthday cake for their daughter, but their souls were also fed. The couple received counseling and are to be enrolled in JFS Orlando’s Family Stabilization Program.

Watch the video below to see the couple’s reaction to receiving a birthday cake for their 10 year old daughter from JFS Orlando’s Pearlman Emergency Food Pantry.
