Granger Community Church Food Drop 2011

Whitney and Sophie Food Drop 2011 

Did you hear?  Granger Community Church gave out food to 2600 families in our community this weekend — In a snow storm that left South Bend with 40 inches of snow. We supplied so many boxes of food for these poor people stuck in their homes, that if you lined up all the boxes, they would cover the length of 58 football fields.

For kids who are just at head-clunking-box level, or if they were just too cold, there were activities inside.  Belle and I decorated about 20 Kleenex boxes to hand out along with food boxes.

It was a phenomenal morning.  I am so grateful that our whole family could participate.  The girls had amazing stories about the people they handed their boxes out to in South Bend.  I can not imagine how happy people must have been to get a knock on their door in the middle of a snow storm with someone standing there with a box of food and personal care items.

I thought I’d share some fun photos I snatched from Mark Beeson, DC Curry, and Melisa Johnson.  Thanks for letting me snatch
