Week 65 at the Bread House

Week 65
The Bread House would like to spotlight a new volunteer who has made many contributions. 9-year-old Charlie Harrison attended Vacation Bible School at Shalimar United Methodist Church. Children who attended VBS toured The Bread House after hours to learn what the program did for our community. Once VBS was over, Charlie asked if he could help at The Bread House. So Charlie and his mom, Katie Williams, began volunteering. Charlie has been a great team member doing an assortment of tasks, and with each new responsibility, he has done so with great care and attention to detail. Charlie will be returning to school soon at Shalimar Elementary School. Hopefully, we can convince Charlie to help us again over some breaks or holidays from school. The Bread House is open Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 9:00 am until 12:00 pm.

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!
