More than 60 of our dedicated food pantry volunteers got together on Friday December 16 for a delightful Christmas party. The celebration was a well deserved thanks for all their efforts as well as a fun chance to get together and enjoy food, games, and laughs.

When asked about his involvement in the pantry Fred smiles and says that “it's a good way to keep busy”. Anyone who hears Fred and sees that smile knows that “keeping busy” at the pantry means driving the truck to pick up food and supplies, moving seemingly innumerable pallets of cartons, cans and produce, coordinating and encouraging the efforts of the many other volunteers, resolving issues that invariably arise in the weekly pantry routine, constantly considering the needs of others in the pantry family, welcoming pantry patrons and more.
In the enthusiasm and excitement of events such as our recent Thanksgiving turkey distribution when we are all thankful for the generous good we as a well-coordinated team have accomplished we might do well to also consider how thankful we are for Fred being with us. We also give thanks to all who donate money, food and time to help others. Bless you.
