Thrift center setup at the food pantry site yesterday

Yesterday was a busy day! We set up at the First Lutheran church where the food pantry is housed. We’ll just give you an idea of the help we were able to be to families. We helped 59 people with many different items. Warm clothing was a big item on the list.

It was 45 degrees yesterday…today it is 9 degrees and snowing. Folks got what they needed in the nick of time. 27 hooded sweatshirts, 25 coats, 46 pair of warm socks, 30 pair of gloves, 20 caps, 36 blankets, 22 snowpants or coveralls, plus scarves, heaters, housewares, coffee pots, toaster, towels, bedsheets, etc.

We prayed with a gal who has terminal cancer. Folks, there are a lot of hurting people and a lot of need.Please, pray for Rebekah and her husband.  We couldn’t have helped all of these people yesterday without the support of money and thrift items that you have provided for us to give.

More warm socks, gloves/mittens, caps, blankets and hooded sweatshirts are needed as well as snowpants/coveralls and coats. Thanks for your help…God Bless!
