four years ago Helping in His Name Ministry was established to wage war
against Hunger. People were struggling
with illnesses, job layoffs,
tragedies and death. Suddenly they faced the very necessity of life: THE NEED FOR FOOD.
Susan saw that need and the Food Pantry was born. Twenty four years later the need has grown and
continues to grow.
Hunger should not exist in our communities or in America at all, but at the
Pantry the calls asking for assistance seem to increase daily. Every
day tons of food are throw away while hungry and homeless people search to fill their
bellies to take away the pain. It has been
reported that 1 in 6 children will go to bed hungry tonight.
children go to school and eat breakfast and lunch there but have no food at home for the night or the weekend or summer or holidays, it
disturbs me. The very
thought of someone being thirsty or hungry hurts and brings pain to my
heart even as I write this message.
HIHN we have continued to model the love and compassion of Jesus by
providing food and encouragement
to needy families. Seniors, the unemployed or underemployed, disabled individuals and single parents struggle
their families every day. As staff and volunteers, we reach 1,000 to 1,100 families monthly with FREE FOOD. We can’t meet
all their needs but we can help relieve some of the burdens on these
families. We often hear, “ Thank
you for helping us.
My family was struggling and I didn’t know what to
do. You have encouraged us, given us food and we were
dignity and felt your love and compassion.” The FOOD PANTRY’S daily goal is to make a difference
in the lives of those who reach out for assistance.
Join us in this fight against Hunger.
Together we can make the difference. You can give of your Time,
your Financial Support. There is no gift too large or
small. Every item of food blesses a table, ever dollar keeps the
open and every volunteer hour helps us to meet the Challenges against
Will You choose to be Blessed by Blessing Others?
May God be with you all as He blesses your tables with abundance of food and your families with
health and happiness.
