Bread House Week 37 & 38

Week 37 & 38: Happy New Year from the Bread House! Luckily, we were open over the holidays, because we had many visitors in just two days each week!

A special thanks go out to all our faithful contributors who donate funds to help us buy milk and eggs each day we are open and other items we need. Also, a huge thanks to those who continue to bring donations for the Bread House; without you, we would not be able to reach out and help those in need! Thank you so very much!

Let me introduce the persons in the picture, Bill (left) and Phil (Right).
Bill brings milk and eggs every day that we are open. He started this when we began working out of the back of an SUV in front of the FLC. He has continued for nine months! Thanks, Bill! Phil is our “Bread Man!” He has brought bread as long as Bill has been bringing milk and eggs. Phil donates the bread each day! If it weren’t for these two Christian men, the Bread House would not exist! Thanks, Guys, for a job well done!
