Then the Cupboard was bare ...

Somehow we made it. 52 families served today. This is all we have left going into next Saturday's 65 families .
Frank and his crew packed every box needed today.  The last couple did not have the variety that others did, but they made it.  Fifty-two boxes packed for fifty-two families.  As you can see from the picture there is not much left on the shelves.

Next week it looks like we will be serving about 65 families.  We really can use your help.  We are going to need at least 1250 pounds of cans and other non-perishables to meet this need.  It is very unlikely that we will get much from Second Harvest.  (They have been running very low.  Last week we were not able to acquire a single can from them.  During the past several months the supply of cans has been very spotty at best.)

If you got a bag of groceries from 10 friends you would bring in about 100 pounds.  If we have just 13 of our friends gather cans from 10 friends we would have enough to meet our need on Saturday.  Click Here for more food drive ideas. Another way to help is to donate financially so we can buy what we need at Aldi's. If you would like to do this here is a link to PayPal or you can send a check to Common Heart, PO Box 2761, Indian Trail, NC 28079.
