Angels Respond With Help

November 21, 2009


I have written you all about the lack of food for the poor of Sterling available from LINK the service group which has 17 member churches in Sterling and Herndon.

This note of happiness from a board member of LINK:

(quote) "As much as we talked about how low the pantry looked (empty), how nice it was to see the pantry tonight with items on all shelves....."today alone" from member churches were 160 bags donated. With all the quiet angels who help everything is put away and the shelves look good this evening. I have never lost faith that our churches come through at just the right time.... our faith and Our Lord watching over us LINK will always pull through. A job well done to all those "Quiet Angels" that keep the LINK pantry going. " (unquote)

The LINK Board voted to increase the number of families helped by 20% to a record number of 650 (note: with children, you are helping 7,000 people).

LINK On November 21st, LINK's clients will receive food for 5 to 7 days and winter clothing.

On December 19th, LINK's clients will receive food for 5 - 7 days and toys. Our goal is to have over 60,000 pounds of food, 3,200 toys, 1,200 coats, and 600 pounds of frozen meat from the Hunters for the Hungry program donated. We will also be seeking over 500 volunteers who will help make this enormous task manageable.
