Diaper Drive

Diaper Drive

For the next two weeks I will be collecting diapers for the Fredericksburg United Methodist Church Food Pantry. The FUMC Food Pantry is one of the only food resources left open. Most of the other area food pantries have closed due to Covid-19.  After speaking with them I learned that they have plenty of food for local families but could really use diapers.

What we should have been doing anyway…helping during Covid-19

This past weekend my son was having a rough day. So we sat together in my favorite comfy chair to read a short devotional. The devotion was about a struggling family and how in the midst of lost jobs and financial strain the community came together to support them. At the end of the passage the author says "Sometimes God's sweetest blessings are in a bag of groceries. The next time you're at the store, grab an extra bag and fill it for a family."
