The summer has yielded much produce donated from The Boston Food Bank, The Commission on Hunger and many individual gardens around the New Bedford area. On week we were so blessed with produce families received multiple fresh vegetables and fruit. With Labor Day fast approaching we are now collecting back to school supplies for the children of our families. Many children will not be fortunate enough to have new shoes or clothing for the first day of school but it would be wonderful for them to receive much needed school supplies. One fall, St. Mary's Church of New Bedford, collected over one hundred backpacks that we distributed. You wouldn't believe how much it meant to these kids. One little girl after picking out a hot pink backpack told me it was better than Christmas. So please whatever you might be able to do to help these kids is really appreciated.
