    THANK YOU TO ALL OUR VOLUNTEERS!

    HALLELUJAH! PRAISE THE LORD, INDEED!
     All the Boy Scout food, 18 cartons from Chick-fil-A, plus our regular donated food is all processed and in the pantry!  We are filled to overflowing once again; the freezers are filled with turkeys and chickens!  We are running over with stuffing, cranberry sauce, canned tomatoes and pumpkin, gravy and broth!
     
    GOD IS GREAT AND HE IS WITH US!
     The scout drive was 6800 items strong (800 were expired).  The favorites were once again canned vegetables(1000) and soup(750).  We must have 12-15 cartons of Odds&Ends.
     
    We had great teams of volunteers all week (someone posted it on FaceBook)
    Thank You, Julie!
    We had good participation all during the week with members of our Wed/Thurs crews which was a blessing in directing the effort.  One individual was with me all 8 sessions.

    EAGEL SCOUT FOOD DRIVE

    Eagel Scout candidate is planning a Palmyra-Riverton Food Drive, March 5th-12th.  His name is Jeff Kolarovic from Troop 70.  The Food Drive will benefit the Bread of Life Food Pantry.

    Because of Thanksgiving & Christmas the pantry will have an immense shortage of food in the winter.  The Food Drive will correct that by replenishing the shelves for the needy and hungry.

    I ask that you donate anything you can; 1 item can make a difference for someone

                                                       Thank you

    for your generouse and selfless act to benefit the community.

    Jeff Kolarovic
