Bread House Week 63

Week 63

Things are starting to increase at the Bread House. Numbers are up, and when we asked some of the visitors, they said they were concerned over the upcoming storm, so they wanted to have some food. We continue to fill a need in the community. Surprisingly, the majority of the visitors are elderly. We have seen more grandparents raising their grandchildren, which puts a burden on them. The Bread House is a big help for them.

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!
