MUST Neighborhood Pantry

From Scotty  Brewington: It happened again. All of it. It poured rain. All night.

Volunteers still showed up and got it done. Over 200 families got their groceries.

Even more impressive? Many of the volunteers out there soaking wet for hours were doing it for the second month in a row. “Thank you” doesn’t even come close to covering it, but thank you. Without those  volunteers, none of this happens. Thanks for everything you do! See you on Monday, February 6th. Sunshine and good vibes only.
