Saturday, October 6, the
NHN Food Pantry served 103!
That same morning, Garry Friend received a message about the mission work being done by NHN Volunteers. Feedback such as this message help us to see how God is blessing the work we do at NHN. The message read:
"I wanted to let you know what a good reputation you are building. I am working to help a family get back on their feet after losing almost all of their belongings to mold in an unsafe apartment. While delivering furniture that various people have donated this morning one of the adults came back from visiting your food pantry. She was so appreciative and impressed with the environment, quality of food, and dignity. They moved to the Lynchburg area to get away from bad influences for their children in Roanoke and then were mistreated and allowed to fall through the cracks by agencies they turned to for help here, but slowly they are being shown God's love mostly by Amherst Co people and you all are part of that. This family, my family, Amherst Co and the surrounding area are so blessed by your organization and staff.I know this woman made sure she made her thanks known this morning, but please pass along my heartfelt thanks to your volunteers as well! I know that I can direct people to you and trust that they WILL be taken care of and treated with respect and love and that is no small thing!"
