Non-Food Bank “To ease the burden of poverty by providing basic household necessities and a word of hope to those in need.” In April we once again did our distribution as drive-up only and only from 9am to noon. Our five volunteers served 184 households, giving the same 8 items to each household. Once again, everyone was cooperative and very grateful for the help. The plan is to once again do drive-up from 9am to noon for May 20th. The items to be given is still to be determined. Hopefully in June we will be able to return closer to our normal process and give away more items to those in need. We have received several donations throughout the past months, including $500 each from St. Joseph & St. Alphonsus and a generous $2000 donation from the Wakeman Eagles Redcaps. These gifts will greatly help us as we continue to offer hope and help. Thank you to everyone who continues to support this ministry.
