Yesterday we had the privilege of hosting 21 volunteers who spent more than two hours in our warehouse helping us get ready for our next Feed the Kids distribution day. They helped by boxing non-perishable food, preparing 100 meat bags, and setting up the warehouse for the distribution day on July 8th. This group of volunteers is on their annual Impact mission trip to help those in need. They are from Faith Lutheran Church of O’Fallon, IL which is based just outside of St. Louis and while they are here they are staying at a Faith Lutheran Church in our area. They usually spend their time on tornado relief and they decided to focus their efforts this year on supporting food pantries and other organizations’ (like HSP) that help the hungry.
Not only did this amazing group of volunteers help us out yesterday, but they also came back today and volunteered as well. We would like to thank these wonderful volunteers for taking the time to come and help support us all the way from the St. Louis area. With their help, we will be able to serve 100 families in our next Feed the Kids distribution day.
