Bread House Week 40

Businesses think in terms of record sales. At the Bread House, we have distributed record numbers of bags of food to our community. Thankfully, we have received a huge amount of produce and frozen meat from Destin Harvest and large donations of canned goods and other items from our congregation during this busy time!

I have personally received blessings from those we serve. Ollie is a weekly visitor who collects food for seven people in her community. She is gracious and very appreciative of anything we provide. Recently, Ollie came running toward me with her mask on with outstretched arms to tell me her COVID test was negative. Another day, Ollie brought me a big container of Clorox wipes and was so proud she could share something of value with me! Ollie is a blessing to her community and me.

On a very busy day, a gentleman stopped by to contribute three bags of food. I recognized him, and he told me that we had served him for three months. He had gotten a job and wanted to give back to us. He was a blessing to me as well.

We could not operate the Bread House without your prayers, gifts of money and food, and our dedicated volunteers. Thank you for allowing us to thrive in our ministry to those in need!
