The July 2020 Edition of “The Chirp”, the official Sparrow’s Nest newsletter, features an inspirational note from founder Krista Jones.

Krista Jones, Founder of Sparrow's Nest CharityAs the landscape continues to change daily, the staff at Sparrow’s Nest also continues to adjust their plans to keep cancer patients safe.

We have eliminated 90 percent of our kitchen and driver volunteers and are working with a skeletal crew to get all meals and extra groceries safely to over 300 people in 5 counties. Farmers have donated land, seedling and labor to help us grow fresh veggies and fruits as we prepare for our new normal. We owe thanks to BethAnn Bruno from The Farmer’s Touch, Jessie Caradonna from Caradonna Farms and Christina DeMaio from Minard Farms Beverage company.

We started our summer program, Camp Sparrow, early this year. We give families deli meats, cheeses, rolls and snacks in addition to their regular meals because with children now learning from home, families need more than just dinner.

Our events have also been revamped. We now are finding creative ways to virtually engage our community to show solidarity and hope. You are a big part of this profound impact. We watched you run your 5k, we saw you wearing your new dress-down shirts and we enjoyed your messages of encouragement to our families.

We are committed to meeting the food needs of our families and thank you for supporting us during these times of uncertainty.

Please consider strengthening your impact by turning a one-time donation into a recurring donation. For just $25 a month (that’s just one lunch with a friend) you are providing longevity to Sparrow’s Nest and stability to the families we serve.

Now more than ever, families facing cancer are relying on the safe, no-contact delivery of homemade meals provided by Sparrow’s Nest. Become a Sparrow’s Circle member today by setting up your recurring donation and have a lasting impact for generations to come.
