A VERY HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO EVERYONE from RELIEF SHARE!By
A VERY HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO EVERYONE!!!
Relief Share efforts this Thanksgiving were prayed over and intensive, such a blessing to so many people. It took dedicated volunteers in three states, but many families received donations given to them with love. For privacy and security’s sake, we don’t mention names.
A family with many beautiful children was grateful for the food provided. The sweet mother was careful to pick healthy items that her family needed, she is so precious and loves her family very much. I knitted her a baby cocoon for the little one who will show up right away. Their children are so sweet and have such good manners. I am so glad their tummies will be filled this Thanksgiving, because of generous donations from loving volunteers, and especially one very kind and precious donor!
In Arizona, there were other families who received needed food. One person, in particular, stands out in my mind. They have severe health problems and their diet is very restricted, but they love fruit and just can’t afford it. Our volunteer who lives near them, made sure they got a wonderful big fruit basket, filled with their favorites. There were other families in the San Tan Valley area near Phoenix, Arizona, who needed food and Relief Share volunteers took care of that. Everyone was so grateful and I am passing along their thank yous to the unsung heroes who made it possible.
In Idaho, Relief Share volunteers were able to bless a small mountain community, way up in the mountains. Relief Share volunteers that live in the area, drove hours down the mountain and back to get food for these families and take it to them. One of the families lives in a small camper trailer, they are expecting. They don’t have a car so they walk to church and walk to the store (even in the snow). They are both hard workers, during wood season they hand cut and split firewood to make money and are doing all they can to survive but it is so hard for them. Other families who are experiencing hardship were given food and it was touching to find out that even with as little as they have, they will be sharing with their neighbors – that is just the kind of wonderful loving people they are in that community.
In Missouri we decided to help through donations of comfort toys, as the need for food this Thanksgiving was being taken care of through the local food pantry, who Relief Share regularly donates to, to help with their charity efforts. The comfort toys are brand new stuffed animals that we purchased from a discount store in the area and they have been donated to the hospital emergency room, OB unit, ambulances and other places who help sick and needy children.
May God bless you as you bless others!
A VERY happy Thanksgiving to you!
Hugs and love
