Finishing Touch
The front entrance sign is the finishing touch!

The front portico is displaying the NHN emblem recently installed by McBride Sign Company. Shoppers are enjoying the coverage from rain and intense sun exposure and the chance to chat with others as they wait to shop.
Thank You!
Every cart adds up!
Thanks to New Beginning Tabernacle for the grocery cart overflowing with canned food items. It's encouraging to see our church partners encouraging their congregations to come together and address food insecurity in our community!
Neighbors Helping Neighbors appreciates our community for the many ways they support our mission.

Volunteer Spotlight

We would like to recognize volunteer, Frances Austin for our June volunteer spotlight. A lifetime Amherst County resident and busy pastor's wife, she divides her time between family and volunteer work. She has pulled double duty with NHN by working in the warehouse with Saturday shoppers and in the MHBC food kitchen. Her homemade cakes not only bring a smile to the faces of our food kitchen guests but our volunteers, too! We salute you, Frances!
