And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased. Hebrews 13:16
Most of us are far more blessed than we realized. We have a roof over our heads. We were able to eat a meal today. We have a fancy device, on which, we can read this article. However, this isn't the case for everyone in Troy. There are those who are struggling to make ends meet. They find it difficult to put food on the table and meet basic needs.
This past Saturday it was awesome to see our church step up and help meet the basic need of clothing for some in our community. We had people lining up at the door at 8:30am, the clothing giveaway began at 9am. We were able to send out 119 bags of clothes home with those who are in need. It was a beautiful picture of what Jesus calls His church to be: loving, generous and kind.
It was also a blessing to see those who volunteered for the event. It's no small undertaking to be able to do this event. We had people help get the clothing to the church, sort it and set it up on tables. We had those who were here Saturday morning to help keep the tables straightened up. We had volunteers helping our guests find what they needed. In many cases, they also helped carry the bags to their vehicles. A major "Thank You" to our volunteers who stepped up for this event! Thank you for serving our community!
