We’ve had a very busy month of August, feeding 140 families, feeding nearly 300 people. Last month we fed 62 families, 160 people. As you can see, we are continuing to grow. Because of the cost of food we only helped a couple of families with their bills due to the low amount of funds available to us. Thanks to your contributions we are building our funds back up but still have a way to go. Thanks to all of you who supported our food drive earlier in August. You truly have no idea how much this has helped. If you can find it in your heart and wallet, we still could use your help on these items. As always, you remain in our prayers each time we are open. Thank you once again for remembering your neighbors in need. When you donate to us, we are truly helping YOUR neighbors. God bless all of you. May our children, teachers and staff have a safe and productive school year.
