So what changed?

“…You have saved us from what would have been a week of misery and hunger and have restored our faith in humanity. We wish there were more people like yourselves, we have never felt so humbled I simply don’t know how to thank you enough. I hope we can return your kindness when we are in a better position.” — a foodbank parcel recepient.
