Bread House Week 46

(Photo: We want to welcome our newest volunteer, Gloria (in the green shirt). She still works but has Fridays off and wants to help when she can! Thank you, Gloria!)

Week 46: This week we had 26 new families visit us, which represented 92 new individuals touched by the Bread House. That is double the number of new families we had last week. This week was particularly crazy. We gave out more bags for groceries than we took in. Our shelves are bare! But it is all for a good cause. One lady shared that she was on her way to a job interview after having been out of work for some time. Robin (our Friday manager) told her she would pray for her, and the lady said, "Let's pray right now." So, they prayed together. Hopefully, we will find out if she got the job!

If you have not stopped by the Bread House, please come by any Mon, Wed, or Fri between 9-12. We would love to show you around!
