“As I walk up 4 flights of stairs, I know I will see a smile on Bob’s (not his real name) face as I deliver his hot meal. Bob is in a wheelchair and lives in a building with no elevator. I often wonder how he gets in and out of his building. But, I definitely know that I’m making a difference in providing Bob this service.”
Bill (not his real name), a grandfather, walked apprehensively up to the CES intake desk glancing around uncomfortably. He was greeted by a smile and a friendly, “How can I help you? Have you been here before?” When he responded that he had not, Jean Anderson (volunteer) took his information down and gently told him to wait until his name was called. As he sat in the calming atmosphere, surrounded by the stained glass windows and the Augustana Lutheran Church altar, he relaxed a bit.
Hunger Doesn't Take a Vacation
Summer is here with all its activities, vacations, family time and fun. However, for those CES serves, they may not have funds for food, much less vacations. People each week come to CES hungry, but more importantly, they need our love and care during this time.
