Times are hard and they affecting more and more people. We feed between 100 – 125 families a month, with food from the pantry. Six months ago a food pantry opened up in Martin County, KY which is feeding the people we use to pay out-of-pocket to feed. The Mingo County, WV folks get food from the USDA commodities food bank and that is provided to Christian Help free. We were notified that for the month of August we would not get any USDA commodity foods. With the help of our great friends Donna and Fred Rieser we got food from their food pantry and they delivered it to us on a Saturday. It meant that Christian help paid to feed the Mingo County residents this month, but the cost of the delivery was provided by the Rieser Family. And the good news is, by the grace of God and the donation of friends  we are able to continue to feed our folks. We were even given fresh fruits and vegetables which is something we never get. Let us continue to pray for one another during these hard times.

God bless you and your families,

Sr. Therese and Staff
