As we look at ways to serve, we find ourselves working toward putting ourselves out of work—which is not necessarily a bad thing as it means we are accomplishing much. It was a busy day at Good Shepherd; emptied a thirty-six foot truck full of supplies from Ohio and feeding 600 meals. I can’t say how many buckets we gave away today exactly but here’s a shot: 20 buckets from FaithPointe and approximately 50 female hygiene bags; we put out about 60 buckets from the truck, so my guess is over 80 cleaning buckets.
At FaithPointe, Jaques Walker is meeting with the leaders of Tangipahoa Parish tomorrow to get some ideas on how we can help. FaithPointe is responsible for the meal pick-up and delivery as well as returning the carriers. Operation BBQ Relief is leaving Louisiana Friday which will end our meal distribution partnerhip. We could not have done this without them!
