Our team sent a healing message to Richard Jacob.  We continue to hold him in our thoughts and prayers.

We are excited to welcome Bobbie Doak as a weekly Pop Up volunteer.  Bobbie recently moved to Columbus and wished to continue volunteering at a pantry.  She comes with great experience.  Welcome Bobbie!
