    What a great group of people here. We made 50 or so homeless men and women's life a little better for one day. I wish I could share that kind of love every day.

  • Molly S.

    I'm going to tap my mom to make a huge army size pot of something like curry or spaghetti n meatballs. It's crucial we realize we are taking care of a temporary need, filling bellies for a day. But we can make a lasting impact through our conversations and prayers with and for those who may have quit and lost hope. We have much to give beyond a meal.

    2 · April 12, 2013

    I will bring the potato salad and a case of bottled water.
