Volunteer Help is always needed!  I was told today that Thursday's beginning about 9:30 they bag rice and beans for food baskets.  Friday's around 11 the assemble the food baskets.  Saturday's volunteers are needed to help with distribution.  Also there is a thrift store always in need of help sorting and getting things onto the shelves.  And they are gearing up to start sorting and packaging items for their annual coat, blanket, food, health kit, and toy distribution around Christmastime.  
Call 915-858-2588 with questions or to volunteer.

Thanks for passing the word,
