Food Give-A-Way Results
Posted by Overcomers International Ministry
As many of you know, last week Thursday, May 30th, we had a food give-a-way. In a word, the results were…AWESOME!! We give thanks to God for the supply we were able to gather and store for this event, thanks to the contributions by Colorado Springs residents who gave above and beyond what we could have asked or thought. A shout-out to my Father, who multiplied our food and allowed for us to feed 226 people, that’s 56 families, ya’ll. The largest was a family of 9, I believe.
For me personally, this is huge…not only did I get to be part of “the other side”, I got to help plan it, enact it, and I give all the credit to my Father, to Iva who did such a wonderful job directing traffic in the food pantry and getting the food out expeditiously. To Christine who amazed me with her ability to multi-task, getting our guests to sign the sheet, fill out the application paperwork and get them in and out so that others could come. The line formed down the hall and out the door into the very windy air. I also want to thank Jenny , who along with me, took pictures of the events as they unfurled and I beg anyone who sees their face on this site to remember that this is a nonprofit. We’re still learning and in transition. We will have a few changes for the next food give-a-way which we hope to accomplish every 3 months or so as food allows. Last but definitely not least, I want to thank our resident artist, Debra who spent the morning painting and the afternoon serving. Thank you, ALL, for your versatility, your passion towards helping those less fortunate. I am proud to know you all and I know our Father is as well!
