If at all possible we need you to participate in the Friday night distribution preparation from 4:30-6:00. Many of our regular volunteers will not be on hand. Please consider coming down to the church to fill bags and lay out the clothes! It would also be great to see you on Saturday morning.
We are still packing our bags to the brim with donations from Publix and deliveries from Feeding South Florida. Debbie has her oven’s fired up to bake cakes to serve with coffee. Fresh string beans and tomatoes are finished for the season – Thank you to the Dunn Brothers and Wiegant Farms for all the produce they provided these past months. We have been blessed by local support!
Because July 4th is on a Saturday and so many volunteers will be out of town or have other commitments and because August has 5 Saturdays, we are changing the Distribution Dates for July and August. We will meet on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month in July and August. We will return to our regular 1st and 3rd Saturday in September.
And we are blessed by you. Because of you we are still here – distributing food and clothing with a smile. Come and see the love!
This past Wednesday, Farm Share organized a food event with the Cutler Ridge Police Station. Tom, Kevin, and I and others assisted with the planning. There were volunteers from schools, Target, other food pantries, etc. Over 900 people received 30 pounds of food each – canned goods, cantaloupe, cucumbers, eggplant, corn on the cob, bread, and more. They even had a DJ to keep everyone hoppin’. Many of our clients were there. We distributed from 8:30am to noon. Everyone was blessed!
