Sherree Funk is a member of World Vision's National Leadership Council.
One of World Vision’s greatest strengths is the multiplication of resource and impact through partnership. WV partnerships around the world leverage donors’ gifts so greatly that every dollar given yields $1.30 in impact. Here in the USA, when the lamentable COVID-19 shutdown produced joblessness, despair, and food insecurity, World Vision proved once again the power of partnership.
Jim and I were able to see and marvel at this expertise in June, when we were invited to a food distribution event here in Pittsburgh. We knew that World Vision was committed to thirteen weeks of food boxes for 100 needy families, right here in Pittsburgh, as a way to help people dealing with economic hardships. We didn’t know how much more they were doing. This event opened our eyes.
