I volunteer here in our Ministry, Not only do we give away food but clothing. I am in charge of the food dept. and the receiving area where we receive donations of clothing, household goods and other goods like bedding. Everyone's allotted 5 items a month and in the grocery area we let them pick out what they want, but their is an allotment on how many items they can get. With everything it runs around 35-40 lbs. depending on what we have, We are not dependent on on the government. But on donations. A lot of the clothing is boxed up and sent to a receiving house and they pay us for it and then we in turn buy groceries with it from an outlet that buys out grocery stores. all in allit works out great and since we are small city we only have about 600 cards to fill. If we need to we will sign up more. We have had as many as 900. A job folks and is all volunteer.
