On Saturday, 21 Dec 2019, we conducted a mobile food pantry, in partnership with United Health Care.
Our location was an isolated community located in Monroe County. We worked closely with Principle
Joey Deputy and Assistant Principle Shan Dalton of the local elementary school, Pastor Harrold Preyer,
his wife Fran, and many volunteers of Grace & Glory Church. We were also blessed with numerous
volunteers from our church and local workers from the Coker Creek community.
In the end, we received this letter from a Monroe County Juvenile Court caseworker. “I sent one of ‘my’
families to your event. They certainly needed it. They contacted me with tears in their voice of pure
gratitude. They could hardly believe what they received and that they were given a shopping cart full. I
am passing their joy along to you with my thanks as well.” Signed, Judith Dwyer.
We provided food for 259 family units, serving 867 individuals overall. As is always said, pictures speak
more than words, so let’s speak some pictures.
