About 5 years ago I found; no more ran into a guy named Terry Williams as he was carrying boxes of food into our churches food pantry. I asked him if he could use some help and I ended up carting the food in, for lots of different volunteers and sorting it before the service. Then 15 minutes before the service ended I was back in there handing it out. It was amazing to see folks who really needed it getting the fresh fruits, vegetables, and dairy products.
Well Terry and I sat down a few weeks later and I learned this was an all volunteer opperation; that it started with a single box of food and grew into over 30 pick ups and deliveries a week by that time. And Terry was doing almost all of it in his old Sequoia.
Last year this little ministry moved over 6,000,000 pounds of food around both Las Vegas and Denver and I asked if he could use cash donations and of course he said yes. So here is a video that explains it a bit.
The whole reason for this effort is to recognize how blessed we are that we are not out on the street corner with a sign like the guy below. I know I am.
There is another way you can help; introduce me to your friends and family that are thinking of making a move. It would be my pleasure to guide, assist or help them make informed decisions.
