Bread House Week 33

Week 33 was another record-setter. We went over 30 tons of food given out since we started in April! We were a little slower with Thanksgiving, but we had new visitors stop by and see us! One grandmother and her granddaughter came to the Bread House, and I gave the granddaughter a seashell necklace the Fourth and Fifth graders had put together for folks who come by the Bread House. The fourth-grade young girl was very excited about the gift and asked her grandma if she could come to this church. Hopefully, they will. The grandmother said she had seen the sign and just decided to stop by and see what the Bread House was all about. She also said she had a bag of seashells at home and would be glad to donate them to the church to help.
