According to research from LendingClub Corporation, the parent company of LendingClub Bank, America's leading digital marketplace bank, 54 percent of consumers in the U.S. (125 million U.S. adults) are living paycheck-to-paycheck, with 21 percent of that population struggling to pay their bills, meaning they have little to no money left over after spending their income.
Human Rights Watch reports that since the start of the pandemic, 74.7 million people have lost work, with most jobs lost in industries that pay below-average wages. Many of those who lost work and income are running out of money and savings. A year ago, some 24 million adults reported experiencing hunger.
Add to that the despair of addiction, the depravity of human trafficking, and the devastating effects of disasters, and a picture emerges of tens of millions of our neighbors in desperate need of help, healing, and most of all … hope.
Now, more than ever, we must band together, step to the forefront, and lift up our most vulnerable.
