The Collins family purchased and distributed sausage biscuits, fruit, juice, and water to waiting families. For many families who arrive hoping for a miracle, breakfast is the last thing on their minds as they head out the door. Volunteers fill that crucial gap.
These fabulous Girl Scouts baked muffins to share with waiting families then spent their Saturday morning passing them out along with bottled water. Next, they stepped into our warehouse and worked to inspect and prepare donated clothing for families who shop here free-of-charge.
