Food Pantry: Christmas Food Distribution

Food Pantry Ministry
Well, things were pretty hectic from Thanksgiving distribution until our Christmas distribution on December 15.  Our plea for stuffed animals and toys was answered fourfold.  We received enough goodies that every client, whether they came early or late, was able to find something.  One mother told me that she found everything on her child’s wish list in our sanctuary.  Her smile actually lit up the room.  At last count, we gave food to 270 families and expect that some will call even after Christmas.  60 volunteers helped to set up the sanctuary, and about 40 helped with the distribution on Monday.  It is truly amazing to see the involvement of our own members as well as others who come from other churches and areas to help with our outreach mission.  Easter distribution isn’t until March 23, so everyone will get a little break.  You can continue, however, to bring donations of cash and goods for the food pantry anytime throughout the year.  Thanks again to all who support the food pantry at Grace.
