The Inauguration of the Food4Thought Outreach - November 6, 2016
Under the able direction of social worker, Krista Davidson from Westlawn Elementary School,
the eager volunteers in our congregation prepared weekend meals for 25 elementary students who
don't have access to food on the weekend. As Ms. Davidson told us the stories of the students who will be
receiving these bags we became very touched and inspired by the need!! As our program grows, we hope to be
able to prepare more bags on the first Sunday morning of every month. It's a gratifying thing to do over coffee!! Please join us!!
