Dawna lives with her wheelchair-bound father just across the river in Lewiston, Idaho. Because her father requires so much care, Dawna recently had to quit her job to become his full-time caretaker. They rely on her father’s social security benefits and food donations to make ends meet.

Dawna would like to use Kathy’s little free pantry to help relieve the financial pressure she and father live with every day.
