What does Proverbs 31:20 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Proverbs 31:20

She stretcheth out her hand to the poor
Her liberality is very extensive, reaches to many, and at a distance; it is done with great cheerfulness and readiness; to do good and communicate, she forgets not, it being acceptable to her Lord and husband, ( Hebrews 13:16 ) ; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy;
she gives with both hands, liberally and largely. It may be applied to the church, giving spiritual food by her ministers to those who are poor in spirit, spiritually poor and needy, and who hunger and thirst after righteousness.
