is in the air and it’s time to start thinking about the coming
holidays. Last year we provided Thanksgiving and Christmas food baskets
to 1251 households and Christmas gifts to 738 children. We have every
reason to believe that the need will be as great this year. Local
organizations and schools are promoting food drives for our benefit and
some are collecting blankets and winter coats for our
distribution. The last quarter of the year is always our busiest
back over the year we notice that there has been a small decrease in
the number of people seeking our help. It appears that the economy is
indeed better. On the down side we are seeing more people who are truly
homeless. The recovery doesn’t seem to be reaching the most needy
among us. Our community does a pretty good job of feeding the
homeless but we are severely lacking when it comes to shelter. We
will do our best to provide warm clothing, blankets and sleeping bags
when the temperature really drops.
success this year, our Back to School Backpack and School Supplies
distribution went very well. We gave out backpacks with supplies
to 979 school age children. This has become a very popular
program, one that we hope to continue for many years to come.
want to thank all of those who make our work possible; the volunteers
who give so much of their time, the donors who give so generously of
their cash and all of those who give us food, clothing and household
supplies. It’s a team effort and we’ve got a great team.
Yours in the Lord's service,
