Nothing teaches hope, kindness, courage and compassion like helping others!
Each recipient is blessed...
We see the pain of hunger everywhere. That little boy with the tattered clothing clinging to his mother's hand can feel the pain when his stomach aches. The elderly woman sitting in the back pew who has no food in her cupboards and a purse that is empty knows this pain as well. The children tucked under their mother's arms as they run from gunfire fight more battles than many can imagine, hunger being one of them. The child who has watched his siblings perish because food did not arrive in time knows this pain too well. These are the recipients that are blessed with nourishment and hope for a better tomorrow because of the help of our donors and volunteers.
How would we define the "recipient" of this outreach?
The child who now gets to eat?
Or the child who has learned the life lesson of the importance of helping others and thus begins to understand their role in a much bigger picture. Volunteering teaches us about our hope for a better tomorrow and thus provides a vision to follow as we struggle with the issues that impact so many. We are taught that without kindness compassion is lost. We are taught that without courage, fear takes over and eyes remain closed. Nothing teaches hope, kindness, courage and compassion like helping others.
"Recipients" needed. Please join us as we continue to feed the hungry both nutritionally and spiritually!
