Just to update you all: We have about 8 barrels of donated food! And, of course, we received many other items as well. Enough to stuff a 25 passenger bus and then some! Clothing, household items, food...it is all a good thing! We are still accepting donations Sunday, March 25th, between 12:30 - 2:30 @ Morello Hills Church. We will begin deliver later Sunday afternoon to Bay Area Rescue Mission and The Food Bank of Contra Costa County. Thanks to all you shared with so many....there is a need out there and you help lift the hearts of child and adults in need. Thanks!
