My name is Miriam Moreno, I have worked for the federal government for 25 years. I grew up in a poor village in El Salvador where food was scarce, and life was hard, especially for those who were sick and of advanced age. I would sometimes go to bed feeling hungry, but for many people in the village going to bed feeling hungry was routine and not an isolated event. Ive always had a soft spot for older people and now that I have been blessed with a great job and are in a position to help, I am happy that I am able to give to senior centers in disadvantaged areas through the CFC, because that is my way of showing gratitude and saying thank you for what I now have, which is a lot relative to what I had when I started. Giving through the CFC is a great way to help others but also a great way to express your own gratitude.
