Food Shelf Update from Wayne Holtmeier:
As always we owe many Thank You’s to the volunteers and food/monetary donations from members of Grace Church. Your willingness to support the Food Shelf, in so many ways, to serve our friends and neighbors in need is greatly appreciated. August was the fifth full month under the continued challenges of COVID 19. Year-to-date we have served 193 households. Food donations for August were 1855 pounds. A monthly high for the year. Much of these donations were fresh produce. Thanks to the work of our volunteers there are several changes inside the Food Shelf to make storage and distribution of food more efficient. We hope that after the pandemic has subsided, we can open our doors so you can view the Food Shelf operation. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
