Thank you to everyone who came out and volunteered or donated to this event. We collected two truckloads of food, clothes, furniture, etc. for Joelton Elementary, the Inner City Thrift Store, and expectant mothers with HIV.

We were excited to have Antoine and Chip, workers from the thrift store, loading trucks with us both weekends. Please keep these ministries in your prayers as we continue to build these relationships.

She is unable to work because of her health issues, and the disability she receives is not sufficient for her continuing needs and medical bills. She came in to request food…
