TYLER HENSON of Boy Scout Troop 123, has teamed up with FEED GALVESTON to do a packaging event on Saturday, March 4th, as his Eagle Scout project. The Troop and #FeedGalveston volunteers packaged 10,000 meals for Galveston County Food Bank and St. Vincent’s House Galveston and other food banks. A big THANK YOU to the First Lutheran Church Galveston congregation and to all Galveston area communities for the donations that made this event possible!
Thank you to Insurance Professionals of Galveston County for their recent donation!
Rotarian Richard Rhoades, Pastor, First Lutheran Church, Galveston – presented a program to the Rotary Club of Galveston at yesterday’s luncheon meeting about the serious problem facing many families and individuals in our county: HUNGER. Pastor Rhoades shared with the membership the success of First Lutheran’s recent Feed Galveston initiative and how this vital program is making such a positive impact for those in need of quality food throughout Galveston County.
Pastor Rhoades said: “Hunger is a real issue in our county. The phrase I lean toward in understanding this is “food insecurity” – which helps point out that there are people who are not sure if they will eat or not. And, these people are OUR neighbors. The issues around hunger are many – but this is one we can address with immediacy by packaging healthy nutritious food to share with the food insecure.”
“I am overwhelmed with the generosity shown by the Rotarians. By the end of the meeting, individuals in the club donated enough funds for over 3,000 servings of food for our neighbors! We are on the way to our next Feed Galveston event to help our immediate community needs!”
Thanks to all our volunteers on September 11, 2016! We packaged 20,800 meals for the hungry in Galveston County and delivered them to the Galveston County FOOD BANK, St. Vincent’s House, and Jesse Tree. Thank you!
