As a parent one of the things I value with my children is being able to provide for them. Making the meals they enjoy, helping them pick out the school supplies that are their choices so they are excited to go back to school. I love that Salt and Light gives this dignity back to parents. That parents aren’t just given a sack of groceries, but parents can either buy or earn the credits to choose the food choices they want to their children to have, allowing them to send their children to school with the supplies that their children chose instead of what was just given to them randomly.
I believe that by keeping Salt and Light in the community that this is the church supporting the role of parents and making stronger families. And honestly, we parents need all the support we can get in today’s world. I strongly believe in what Salt and Light is doing.
