Pic #1. Meet Chloe
Chloe is a regular visitor to the Bread House. Chloe brings her owner Jack to the Bread House. As a reminder, animals need food too.  Sometimes we have Cat food and Dog food, but not always. But we always have treats for the dogs, which they love!

Pic #2.  Meet Bill McBroom.  

Bill is our milkman!  Bill goes every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday to purchase milk and eggs for the Bread House. Milk and eggs are a staple the customers really need and enjoy! Bill has been buying milk and eggs for the past year!  Thanks Bill!
