Bread House Week 21

Another huge week for donations at the Bread House! We continue to have a steady stream of folks who need our help. We were open Labor Day and had a huge day! Hunger doesn’t take a holiday! In the picture is Brian with our Friday Manager, Donna. We want to lift-up Brian. He comes every day and gathers food for his neighbors who are struggling. Many of them have no transportation, so Brian asks them what they need, fills out our form, comes to the Bread House, collects the items, and delivers the food. Brian started coming when we were working out of an SUV in the FLC parking lot. Since the beginning, he has helped us deliver food to the Shalimar Ballpark and homebound folks who live in the Shalimar apartments.

On another note: We have completed the walkway and deck to the Bread House this week. Now there is no more walking through dirt and stumps to get to the Bread House! The deck will allow us to have a seating area for our visitors.

Thanks for all you do! Have a great week! Bless you!
