The LINK Mobile Food Pantry is CANCELED for today (April 14th) due to the predicted weather. We will see everyone next month - May 12th.
But God showed His love to us. While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
(Romans 5:8 NLV)
Easter – children in brightly colored outfits, eggs dyed in pastel colors, children bent over seeking hidden eggs, flowers poking their heads out of the winter ground, and rebirth appearing after a cold winter. I believe God loves seeing the joy on our face when we wake up to a blue, sunny sky where warm weather greets us. We can fail in many ways, but God is there to forgive us at every turn. In John 13:34, God sends us a commandment to love one another. Loving our neighbors and those in need is what LINK tries to do. Through the help of our volunteers, we hope to show our clients that they are loved.
We see the good works in our LINK pantry day after day. Thank you to the following individuals/groups/businesses that have helped LINK –
