It was another unbelievable Saturday morning at Cornerstone Church. Lots of people travel 240 miles to Orlando and pay $100 a person to feel the magic at Disney Land. I guarantee there was magic abounding at the food pantry today – and it’s close – and free!
Thanks to those who carefully put meat or pastries in plastic bags, poured a tired woman a cup of coffee, filled bags to overflowing, chatted with a client as they carried her bags to a car parked way out on the grass, consoled at the prayer table, helped a man pick out some clothes for his daughter, rushed to get more bags ready for the next in line, registered a deaf man who turned 52 today, got the news from a returning client, etc etc. There was magic in the air.
Below are the statistics from our Jan. 9 distribution:
|Farm Share||$5816 worth of food|
|Aldi’s||$500 meat, etc|
|Publix||450 bread & bakery items|
|Clients and Volunteers|
|346!!||People picked up a bag of food|
|1034||Individuals benefited from the bag of food|
|91||Volunteers participated in distribution activities; including AGAIN Boy Scout Troop 314 and missionaries from the Church of Latter Day Saints!|
And we were able to share food with the Silver Palm UMC food pantry. Pastor Diane came to pick up 4 different items to distribute at their pantry.
