1. If we reach our goal of 5,500 pounds we will have a week of dress down days
|The shelves are better than last year but they are still in great need|
Yesterday I took a group of students over to the Food Bank to learn more about their work and to see who we are assisting. Erin D'Loughy, the volunteer coordinator, gave us a wonderful tour and a good overall sense of what they do. The Food Bank provides food to over 400 agencies in the state and last year they distributed 8.5 million pounds of food. This year they are on track to distribute 10 million pounds. Our students laughed saying that our 5,000 pounds or so is just a drop in the bucket but Erin said that works out to about 10,000 meals.
If you wish to help out, you can bring your items anytime to the main office. Thanks as always for doing it for Him.
