We want to take a moment to thank all the kindness and support from our community to nourish, educate, and empower close to 30,000 individuals in Central Texas by providing them with resources and opportunities that set them on a path toward success. Through your support, you are joining us in co-creating a path where every family can experience a safe and trustworthy community committed to safeguarding their health and wellbeing.

Every family comes to El Buen with an immediate need and our hope is they find a second home at El Buen and receive the support and comfort they deserve. Let us introduce you to Ana and her beautiful family. Her journey with El Buen began in the early 2000s when she was seeking a safe space to learn English as a Second Language (ESL). What she thought would be a quick in-and-out class, turned out to be a lifelong journey with El Buen. As a new young mother, she turned to El Buen for guidance and found the support and comfort she deserved. El Buen has been with her and her family every step of the way, watching her two kids grow strong and healthy while also providing a sense of community, safety, and trust.

"El Buen became our second home... we learned how to eat healthy and stay fit, while having fun as a family!" – Ana

Today, Ana's family are now stellar volunteers at our annual Hands for Hope flagship event. They are proud to serve their community with love and nourishment and extend the ripple effect of service. Thanks to donors like you, El Buen is able to provide resources and opportunities that move families closer to equity, well-being, and prosperity, just like Ana and her family.

Will you please consider a gift to help open the door for others like Ana and her family?

For many of our families, the first entry point to El Buen is our food access program. This last year, we have witnessed rising economic challenges putting families in the impossible situation of having to choose between spending their hard- earned money to feed their family or paying for other basic needs. No one should have to make that choice.

Please consider a gift to help strengthen the food pantry. Access to essential needs are the fundamental building blocks to a better life. Even the smallest donation can make a difference in someone's future. Your generous gift ensures families like Ana's continue to have a safe, trustworthy community that stands with them de by side on dark nights and bright days.
