Update from Tricounty Family Ministries

News--Kara Stewart Tricounty
The following is a letter from the Rev. Kara Stewart, Executive Director of Tricounty Family Ministries:
I’m so excited to report to you that yesterday at our food distribution, we served 129 individuals by giving out 229 bags of groceries, along with toiletry kits and diapers, and helped to feed 420 people. But more than the numbers, the true story was in the faces of the people we served: the joy on the face of a mom who wasn’t sure if we would have diapers to share, the relief of a man who requested ready-to-eat food, the excitement of the kid who was riding his bike down our street and got to take groceries home to his family.

We are making a difference, one life at a time, and that is how we will rebuild our community.
Based on our experience yesterday, I have altered the time of the volunteer shift for Wednesdays back to 10:00–1:00. I have also added a couple more slots to our SignUp Genius page so that we can staff each task appropriately. Feel free to email friends and family to let them know we have room for helpers. You can also direct people to our website––it is now updated with our current schedule and the links to the SignUp Genius pages. Go to “How to Help” then “Volunteer” and all the information is on that page!

Note: If you would like to join in the volunteer effort but have not served with Tricounty before, please register here. Registering automatically puts you on the volunteer email list so you can stay in the loop.

If you are interested in volunteering, but there are no more slots for workers, please email me. We are making plans to add more days in the coming weeks, but I need to know whether we could staff those days with volunteers.
