Thursday Night Sorting

IMG_0711

Every Thursday night a team of dedicated volunteers show up at Advent Lutheran Church to sort through 100’s of bags of donations we received throughout the week.  The donations we receive a range from warm clothing, new underwear, hand warmers, toiletries, coffee, hot chocolate, powdered creamer, sugar, winter boots, casual and tennis shoes, new socks, sleeping bags, backpacks, blankets, bedding, pillows, and suitcases.  When all is sorted the items are put in laundry carts that are labeled by types of clothing.  It is quite a production that is normally finished in an hour or two.  I’m always amazed how well orchestrated they have it.  Lastly it all gets loaded into the truck and trailer for distribution on Saturday morning. IMG_0710

We are so blessed to have so many people who care as much as we do for our friends in the city.  We thank all of you that donate to our outreach, without you it wouldn’t be possible to continue our journey.  I would personally like to thank the volunteers that make Thursday nights possible.  Your compassion for our friends is unbelievable.

If you have interest in helping or donating you can contact Cheri @ pchesse@sbcglobal.net or call the church office 262-377-2710.

God’s Blessings in this upcoming week.

Mr Bob
