What a great, cheerful group of volunteers from Murphy Road Baptist Church to help Fight Hunger on a chilly Saturday!

They really enjoyed volunteering even though there wasn’t much to work on in the back. They are amazed at how much we do with limited resources.

The cold weather kept our client numbers [relatively] low. We served at total of 76 families – 2 were new.

 

A client wrote a poem for the pantry to share with the community. Thank you, Sally!

Stagnant waters breed disease,
So get on up.. and stir the pot,
It’s time. .. to seize,… new life beyond,
And feel. ..the rustling breeze.

Inside of you.. like Waterfalls.
There’s beauty waiting.. to- be released.

Ask for Help, then get on up…
Cause Its time  to carry on.
No time to waste /nor time to stall

Cause..
“We’re all a link in the chain.. of life,
And Together, we can ease our  strife.
Live with pur…pose, sail ahoy. . enjoy.enjoy
Cause We’re all spokes.. in the wheel of life”

Hap..piness is in us all..
Listen to your heart . as it calls from within…
Like watered seedlings you will sow
By helping others you will grow
Like a planted seed.you’ll bloom
Sharing Love can heal a wound

Cause..
“We’re all a link in the chain.. of life,
And Together, we can ease our  strife.
Live with pur…pose, sail ahoy. . enjoy..enjoy
Cause We’re all spokes.. in the wheel of life

Face your fears/Wipe your tears/ turn.. the gears.
Stir the pot and watch your life transform.

As you grow
a better world you’ll come to know.

So come on..The time is Now…

Lets Go!!
