How to access these products:
If you are struggling economically, talk to your spiritual leader, social worker, healthcare provider, shelter staff, community officer, or settlement worker in the area and ask them if they are a Stone Soup Connector. If they are, they can match you with the gifts you need. If they haven’t heard of us yet, tell them to reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn about becoming a connector. Most local social agencies are eligible to be a social connector.
