Hi Folks, let me start by saying I appreciate all the prayers and well wishes from all you visit the Center and participate in our events. To all that help me to do what we do words cannot express my heart felt thanks. To those who continue to donate and give out of your heart I appreciate you as well.
We are in the midst of changes here at TVC and I believe that they are necessary to help us better serve our community. Again we are committed to feeding the hungry, give ourself in service to those in needs. That has not changed. We have decided that to better serve our clients and concentrate on keeping a balance life our Pantry of the Vines Program will take place two weeks out of the month.
However, if there is an immediate need or request we are able to support that as well. In this present economy doing weekly distributions is no longer an option for us. With keeping the client in mind we have added another service the Mobile Pantry.
I am excited to announce that the Capital Area Food Bank (CAFB) will be sponsoring this event for our communty. It is an excellent opportunity for our clients to receive fresh produce every third Wednesday of the month. Its important that we increase our intake of Fresh fruits and vegetables; which helps us to balance our diets and our wallets. Thanks to CAFB! we can do it without cost to our clients.
Please take advantage of this event because you will have the opportunity to try new and speciality items that you may or may not have tried.
I look forward to seeing more people come out, tell a neighbor, tell a friend, tell everybody this is good news you can use.
Also we look forward to our first ever Empty Bowl fundraising project to be held in February 2012. Look for more information regarding this event that you do not want to miss.
As always I will be praying for you and yours and have a bless and healthy 2011.
Talk to you soon and If you are enjoying these blogs! let me know.
