Our walk in freezer is now hooked up! Just before we received the walk in , one of our outdoor freezers went off line and we lost 300 lbs of meat. Now that our walk in freezer is up and running, we are able to accept meat donations -both fresh and frozen. Our ice machine is working very well. We will have plenty of ice this summer.
Our kitchen is in need of:
- dry cereal
- powdered drink mix
- Paper towels
- Fresh produce
Thank you for all of your support…whether it is time, monetary or volunteering….because of your continued support, we are able to “encourage a pathway home”.
A safe and healthy first step for homeless adults and families on their path home.
