“You never know when hardship is going to strike. You don’t know where it’s going to strike or who it may impact. We’ve learned that no one is immune to it, so we can all benefit from having a little bit of assistance to get us through rough times.”

Teagen Woodlock, Corporate Responsibility Assistant, ALDI

“This grant paid for a great deal of my breast cancer treatment. I was on disability for four months while undergoing chemo, at a reduced income. It would take me a long time to pay these bills on my own. This grant alleviated the stress of going into debt, allowing me to focus on recovery and returning to work without the insurmountable financial burden.”
