Temperatures are dropping, leaves are falling. It must be time for Fall Cleaning! Yes, yes, I know – the real phrase is “Spring Cleaning”. Nonetheless, we have been fortunate for the past number of years at Food for Fairview to have a Fall Cleaning, courtesy of the great folks at Covenant Community Church.
For the past five years, the church has held an event called “Faith in Action Sunday”. Following a brief worship service, the members of the congregation depart from the church to various locales and engage in community service projects designed to help those in need. This year, 300 members of this caring congregation fanned out around town to 18 different locations and participated in 18 different service projects!
We were lucky that church members Jack and Lois Adair , who are faithful Food for Fairview volunteers, suggested that their group come to the food pantry to help out.
The group they led participated in many much-needed tasks, such as cleaning the pantry, organizing our shelves, and re-bagging the large bags of pet food we received from a generous donor into smaller packages.
The pantry looks great, and we greatly appreciate the completion of many needed tasks.
We’d like to salute the volunteers of Covenant Community Church and thank them for the great job they did!
