This past Saturday was another quiet day. With the apparent shuffling of individuals occurring, it’s hard to properly gage what to take, so we maintain our weekly pars. To responsibly address the uncertainty in numbers, we have implemented a new practice to help maintain the quality of freshness in our lunches. Thus way we are able to continue serving lunches by appointment in days we generally don’t go out. It works better for our friends, and addresses the possibility of financial waste our bottom line, by all but eliminating any, with regards to perishables. We were also able to provide loose toiletries, toiletry bags, and BOMBAS socks, to everyone we encountered yesterday. We will continue to maintain our new operational model, as it will serve to be very useful when the numbers go up. Thus is all but sure to happen, when the emergency funding starts to dissipate and be redirected towards transitional projects and other programs aimed at starting over, so to speak! Post pandemic numbers will price to be alarming, however if we prepare now, we will be able to do more with efficiency and consistency, that will serve to help the many we cold encounter, and quite honestly become. So til next time, stay safe and God Bless!!

This week’s Healthy Start Breakfast Program marked our return after we took a brief break to get motive our storage capacity. Having done so successfully, we were able to get back out and do our thing. With the option of either hot cinnamon raisin oatmeal or egg and cheese wrap breakfasts, we were not only happy to be back out helping others, but we were also surprised that people took note of our absence. This acknowledgment from our friends further motivates us to keep up the work, and to keep striving to fulfill the vision of our mission statement “EMPOWERING OTHERS TO EMPOWER THEMSELVES”. We will be out next this coming Saturday with doing our Sack Lunch Program, where we will let you know what we’ve been working diligently on during our brief but very productive hiatus. So til then, stay safe, be kind, Peace, and God Bless!
