Bread House Week 62

Week 62 was interesting. We were slow Monday and Wednesday, then Friday hit, and it was standing room only. We had seven new visiting families and gave out 136 bags of food on Friday alone.

Remember, the Bread House is a Community Outreach program, and we have all kinds of folks come in for food and some dropping off food. We had one visitor who we had not seen in a couple of months, and we asked where he had been? His response was I only come when I really need some food.

If you have not stopped by, please do so and say “Hi” to the gang. If you want to help, come anytime M-W-F, 9am–12pm, and see where you fit in! Thanks as always for all the Congregation and Community support!
