The Pop Up team has been blessed with new volunteers. We welcomed Mildred, close friend and neighbor to Melody, and Sheryl, sister-in-Law to Rose. Sheryl came all the way from Canada! They both enjoyed seeing the Pop Up Pantry at work and were amazed at all the Pantry does for the community!

The Pop Up team delivered 79 Birthday Cake boxes to Southpoint. All the boxes were decorated by the children from Wickliffe Progressive Elementary school. The families at Southpoint were excited to receive them and happy to celebrate with their children on each of their birthdays! See photos below.

Our team will be working with Heart to Heart again on our annual backpack mission. We will again be delivering to the children at Riverview International Center in August. Details can be found in the Heart to Heart Blog.

Our 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.
