Our Pop Up team welcomed another guest volunteer.  Jennifer, Honorary Niece of Peg Roberts, came all the way from Houston, Texas, and was a part of our team for a day.  She was an expert bagger!  We all learned a few new things.  We enjoyed hearing about her work at NASA.

Heart to Heart/Pop Up Pantry had a very successful Backpack Drive.  We were able to deliver 131 filled backpacks on Thursday, August 17 to Riverview International Center and five more filled backpacks were delivered on August 24 and 31.  A grand total of 136 filled backpacks, some extra supplies and food storage containers made for a very successful School Supply Drive.  We are so very grateful to the congregation, family and friends who donated to this project.

We are also thankful for the many blessings the Share and Learn Garden has provided to the Pop Up Pantry.  The families we serve have been so happy to receive such wonderful and delicious produce.

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.
