RECENT FOOD PANTRY UPDATE

TUESDAY, MARCH 24


Well today looked a little bit different than our normal setup but we were able to assist 19 families today in a drive thru manner. All items were prepacked and then moved outside where volunteers greeted each guest as they drove up. For those guests with young children or larger families we provideD "family snack bags" and/or turkeys. 


The outpouring of support from the Gayton family has been over the top! Just when we weren't sure where enough food was going to come from to open this week - it appeared. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!


Today was a great celebration of fellowship with church members, volunteers and guests. Just what we all needed at this time, reminding us it's all about helping each other.


MOST NEEDED ITEMS:

  • Paper bags
  • Spaghetti sauce
  • Peanut butter and jelly
  • Canned fruit
  • Rice / Potato mixes

*You can drop-off these items outside the doors to the gym on Monday, April 6 or before 11am April 7. Please take precautions for you well-being if you are planning to go to the store. Thank you!


Prayer/Praise requests:

  • Patience and understanding by all for our process changes. Our goal is to continue making this a positive, welcoming experience for all. We will miss the interactions with our guests and volunteers for hopefully a short period of time. 
  • AA - Prayer and guidance as a guest and his family navigate through legal issues and successfully find a pro bono attorney
  • BB - Praise for successful physical and mental healing. This guest has been through many challenges over the past few months and is seeing positive results from all her work.
