Wednesday, March 4, was a second rewarding week of the Friendship Center Food Pantry. Traffic dropped off at bit from last week's 27 families — who will be eligible to come back for food next week. This week we had 14 families come to the pantry, and with our "soft opening" successful, we will put the word out into the local media this week that we're open for business.
In another great development, our new sign is done and up and looks great. Thanks to Al Nelson for paying for the sign and for hanging it up. Katherine Montgomery dropped off a food donation and a picture to beautify the Friendship Center, and Deacon Bruce Ziter dropped off a sizable donation of food. We also received the help today of two great new volunteers.
Here are some photos. The new sign. Shirley Davis and Al Nelson clean the front windows. The sign in place. The view of St. Francis Steeple from the front window of the Friendship Center.
