Christian Food Pantry Needs Help
Thank you for your support of the Christian Food Pantry. In July we helped 469 families representing about 1300 individuals. It is unfortunate so many in our area are in need but wonderful that people like you are willing to give a helping hand. We are still in need of the following: People to transport the food collected at NLPC the first Sunday of each month from church to the pantry. Volunteer teams would work together every other month. We have three individuals or couples already signed on but would like three more couples if possible. In the past the food is loaded and transported following the beginning of the tird service but could be done following the third service if necessary. Please respond to this email to email@example.com or call Carrol Neal at the pantry: 352-259-0788. Thank you for your continued support. May God bless you and yours.
Please contact Carrol Neal at 259-0788 between 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.

Operation Homebound Volunteers Needed
Due to many of our members going north and some medical situations that have arisen we are in need of substitute drivers on al days (Monday - Friday). In addition, route 17 on Monday and route 9 on Friday each need 2 permanent drivers.
As many of you know those who drive get more from the clients than they give; it's a very rewarding way to spend a couple of hours each week to help those who are unable to cook for themselves.
A caregiver said to me a couple of weeks ago that he felt like receiving meals cut 25% from his daily caregiving duties. That's amazing...and reinforced how important OBH is to those who are shut in.
If you would like to help please contact Vickie Ruddell in the kitchen at 352-753-8484 or 352-409-0562 or come by and we can chat.
