FHL enjoyed visiting one of our partnering pantries, this time IUPUI’s Paws Pantry. They are growing and always innovating! We also visited with a new partner, Second Helpings. It resulted in a great meeting about addressing hunger in our midst.
Every year on MLK Day, IUPUI students volunteer to help FHL Community. This year, about 30 students helped clean and organize the new FHL Training Center and Warehouse. Afterwards, they reflected about their experience and how it relates to social change – the very thing that FHL endeavors to do: transform neighborhoods and people.
In the past three years over $1,000,000 worth of groceries for the city have been transported by means of this truck.
Unfortunately, in late summer last year this truck had an accident. We have been praying for funds to pay for the repair but up to this point, we have not had sufficient funds to repair it.
So now, we are praying for a replacement truck. We are asking for the truck to be donated. We need a 25-foot truck, with automatic transmission, refrigeration and a lift gate. Please join us in prayer that the Lord will provide so we can in turn serve our neighborhoods better. God bless you.
