Neighbors Helping Neighbors

Service Type:

You will be amazed at what a few people can accomplish! Come today to hear all about a grass-roots program in our own back yard. Suzanne Butler, one of our speakers, writes: "Our work started with taking snacks at night to the 4 month Winter Shelter at the Seventh Day Adventist Church in Mount Vernon several years ago. Nancy Brown recruited me and I recruited friends and neighbors to bake, donate money, donate purchased food and other items as needed. During Covid until now, we have been distributing upwards of 70 lunch bags a week to neighbors without homes in the area. When we have the means to get them out to more people, there have been times when 110 Food Bags have gone out weekly."
