July brought many blessings for our pantry. We averaged nearly 60 families, had an abundance of volunteers and much more food than normal. Folks from the community provided an abundance of fresh produce and eggs and Wythe Distributing gave over 600 pounds of food. We are grateful for God’s guidance as we continue to grow.
We started out June with a lot of fun at the pantry. The weather was perfect and everyone was in good spirits. 15 volunteers provided food for 59 families. We had received extra donations from the auction house and beautiful produce from David and Linda Paul. On Saturday we provided food for two additional families. Well over 138 people benefited this week-end.
God continues to provide us with an abundance of food and a way to serve Him.
December was an excellent month for PGO’s food pantry. In addition to the food from the Central Virginia Food Bank, both cash and food was donated by individuals, churches and companies from the Barhamsville community. Our community’s support enabled us to provide food for ninety three families with fifty five of those families receiving food on both of our opening days. Over thirty different people served as volunteers as four bags of groceries were provided for each family each time the pantry was open. Truly, God is blessing this work. We at PGO would like to express our sincere gratitude to all our volunteers and the fine work they have done this year. A Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all.
“At this special time of year in which we remember the many ways in which God has blessed us, we at PGO would like to wish each of our volunteers and clients a warm and Happy Thanksgiving. We have had a terrific year as we have served our community and we are grateful.”
We had a beautiful May afternoon at the pantry. 15 volunteers enjoyed providing food for 42 families. In addition, the Girl Scouts provided bagged lunches for all the children. Once again God has given us an opportunity to serve him.
