Have you ever had one of those days? You know the kind- you catch every red light, it’s raining, you have on one blue sock and one black sock, you’re tired, and you still have to come up with an idea for dinner. All you want to do is go home and relax. Now add to that the fact that you’re driving home from the hospital where your spouse is fighting a serious illness, your kids are scared, and if you’re honest – you’re scared, too. Dinner isn’t even in the top ten things you need to do.
Believe it or not, we have a ministry for that!
Feed the Need ministry provides cooked meals to members of our community who are dealing with significant life issues. Some are dealing with health issues, some with financial issues and some are just overwhelmed with all the things that have happened to them in a short time. Having a cooked meal brings comfort, community and a bit of “normal” to the day.
Volunteers to the ministry simply check the on line calendar, sign up to bring a meal on a day that’s convenient for them, and they drop the meal off in the Feed the Need refrigerator in Clare Hall. It’s easy to sign up, it’s a great way to talk to your kids about helping others, and it’s how communities show they care.
Whether you’d like to volunteer or would like to receive care from Feed the Need, contact Kathleen Owen at firstname.lastname@example.org or 919-847-8205, ext 241 or Donna Mariani at 919-326-3768.
