2). Our team was able to begin using the new van.  It is wonderful to have such a large space to hold all our food bags and clothing items that we deliver to our many sites each month.  Thank you to all who worked so hard to make this happen.

3). Our team will, once again, be working with Franklinton Farms to deliver food and produce to SouthPark Apartments.  This partnership is seasonal and will be April through October.

4). A few of us from the Pop Up team joined Amy Caskie for the Missions Volunteer WorkDay.  We were able to deep clean Lincoln Road for possible use in the future.  We also helped move items into Brownlee Hall.  We worked hard but had a productive and fun day meeting other volunteers from Upper Arlington Grace Fellowship Church.

We are grateful for everyone who contributes to Heart to Heart and the Pop Up Pantry with their continued donations and service.
