We were excited to begin our seasonal site with Franklinton Farms to South Park Apartments.  Franklinton Farms was also able to secure an interpreter from CRIS, Alia Jama, to help us communicate with the Somalian families.  The weather was perfect as we welcomed and served 14 families on our first visit to South Park!  Many of the families have 8-12 members in one household.  We are so blessed to be able to provide them with food and toiletries.

We welcomed a new volunteer, Laurie Schumacher. She joined right in and got right to work! It was a pleasure to have her join us. Laurie hopes to return as her schedule allows. Thank you, Laurie!

Every site we are serving has added families. We feel fortunate to be able to help serve our community with the food that is needed to feed their families. One cannot describe the feeling of hope, love and kindness we each receive when we see and serve our neighbors. We are immensely blessed as much as our neighbors feel blessed by our pantry.

Our Pop-Up team is grateful for everyone who contributes to Heart to Heart and the Pop-Up Pantry with their continued donations and service.
