It was a quiet night at the food pantry (Why do I sound like Garrison Keillor?) but all who came got meat, eggs, milk, bread and all the usual staples. My favorite image tonight was when I looked in the shop-for room and there was Maja with an adorable baby in her arms. Then I saw her going out the back door with the baby. Let’s see… did I actually see her come back?
The creativity award this week goes to Riley Beebee and her mom Ashley. When selling Girl Scout cookies, if a prospective customer said they couldn’t eat sweets, or something like that, Riley would ask, “Well, would you like to buy a box and donate it to our church Food Pantry?” The kid’s a genius. Riley and her mom brought the food pantry cases and cases of cookies. Everyone who came tonight got a box and we have more for next week. Thanks Riley & Ashley!
If you didn’t see my last email… we have a need for more refrigerator storage. If you know of someone who might have one in good working order to donate, please let me know. We will pick it up.
