Food Pantry Weekly, 06Jul2016

Greetings Foodies!
It was a great day at the Food Pantry!  We were all “braced” tonight for the annual event of recertifying every client. Volunteers were trained in the new process and federal forms; many discussions and emails were exchanged regarding how exactly to implement the sometimes baffling government rules; everything was ready. Really? Then why was I lying awake at 4:00 AM going over everything in my head? And then we had an unusually light turnout. God must have known that we would have been totally overwhelmed with a big night; so He gave us a small one. He is a merciful God! 😉
If you have never volunteered here before, come join us on Wednesday at 5:00 to see first hand what it is that keeps our volunteers coming back!  And if you are interested in exploring a leadership position in the Food Pantry, please contact Carl or Pastor Stella.
Thank you to all our supporters and volunteers, and as always, please pray for all our clients.
