September DLM-Holy Trinity update

Oct 01, 2019

From Rob, our Director of Outreach

We were able to provide extra blessings to DLM-Holy Trinity Food Bank this past Saturday.

We used the surplus school supplies from “Stuff the bus” to make “homework helper” bags, stuffed with pens, pencils, note pads, highlighters, erasers, glue, crayons and more! These were given to the clients and their children at the September 28th DLM Food Bank, as well as the 225 hygiene bags we stuffed and donated. We also donated the back packs we could not use for United Way’s Stuff the Bus event… the smiles on the kids’ faces getting new back packs was a beautiful sight.

We had 60 families that shopped at the food pantry, 35 shopped in the clothing room and 69 meals were served to families!

The Akron Marathon kept us on the edge of our seat as to whether our volunteers could wade through the traffic blockades. In the end, everyone made it safe and sound (twenty FLC volunteers on site).

It was an awesome day serving the families and friends we have come to know at Holy Trinity and the DLM Food Bank! You can join us in October by contacting Rob at outreach@faithlutheranchurch.org.
