Once again, Wickliffe has become a big part of the Pop Up Pantry’s service.  The school chose to do a service project for their end of you ‘Love Out Loud’ theme.  Wickliffe donated 100 Decorated Birthday Boxes!  We plan to deliver to 79 children at Southpoint and 21 children at South Park Apartments.  We are excited to be able to give these children a way to celebrate their special day.  Each box has cake mix, icing, candles, some balloons and a special decorated card.  Serving with Wickliffe…’Love Out Loud’!

Our Pop Up Team welcomed our newest volunteer, Peg Roberts.  Friend of Carla Edlefson.  Peg jumped right in!  We are so thrilled to have her join us.

Each month our Pop Up gives many who come to Hope Resource Center the nourishment they need with love, compassion and hope.  However, we are only a small part of what happens at Hope. All those devoted individuals who work and help at Hope Resource Center do amazing work.  Big things happen!  Read the testimony from Robert in this newsletter:

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