    Our crew helped pack 11,448 meals and that will feed 31 kids for an entire year...now that's a GREAT night's work! It's so awesome to see everyone there, tired from work, fighting traffic, coming from so far away, bringing their kids & friends along, all just to slap on a hairnet and help out. Just amazing what determined, generous hearts can do :)
    Don't forget to check out the pics from last night.

    Sorry to cancel, but with my daughter still in critical condition I can't take the risk of being exposed to anything that could make me sick or jeopardize her. Miss all of you...maybe you could say a prayer for Jenna tomorrow night.

    March 20, 2013

    • Chris

      Really sorry to hear that, Lori. Hope Jenna gets well soon.

      March 20, 2013

    • Lori

      I'm thinking of you every day, Lori, hoping that Jenna's health will finally be fully restored, and that peace and strength be with you all.

    It's going to be another great Thursday night at FMSC! Looking forward to seeing you all, but if for any reason you're no longer able to make it, please change your RSVP to "No," even if you are on the waiting list, so that those who are waiting can attend. Thank you!
