Lend a Hand; Open a Can

A Peacemaking Project by Ammanda F.

What is the injustice we are solving?

With the grant money, the WE LEAD Poverty Reduction Team would purchase multiple can openers to be dispersed throughout the Buckhannon community, whether through the Upshur County Parish House, or through direct distribution. Many people do not have access to can openers. This creates an issue because often people are unable to use the food given by food banks or Parish House donations because they cannot open the food given.
