Our Neighbors arrived early and stayed as long as possible. They were truly grateful to be in out of the pouring rain. They put themselves to work while they waited for the coffee to brew. With Allen's direction, they set up all the tables and chairs plus all of the serving tables.
Gloria Dei Lutheran was our breakfast team this morning. They serve a full breakfast as well as burritos each morning that they cook. The Gloria Dei team planned on a large crowd this morning and they were absolutely right. There was enough breakfast for everybody - 104 plates.
Our pantry supplied 72 grocery bags plus 4 family food boxes for. This team was busy!!
Our clothing department is steady-busy every Saturday morning. It takes a team of 5 volunteers just to keep up plus the sorting of donations that Peggy and Sue do on Thursday mornings. As always, they need donated jeans, shoes, and men's underwear. They always can use backpacks.
