Breakfast program
This past Saturday was a very busy morning as 131 breakfasts were given out. Of course this is
made possible thanks to terrific volunteers – those who shop, bake and come out to prep the food
on Fridays and/or help serve on Saturdays. There are those who greet and visit with our
Breakfast Friends during the mealtime. Several students are earning their volunteer hours and a
couple of them have their hours and continue with us because they enjoy the work. Volunteers
wheel the cart with personal care items to those who join us. Yesterday, 8 volunteers spent two
hours to sort and change over the donated clothing from winter to spring. The winter clothing
was packed up for next fall. Items that had been around awhile were sent to Goodwill. There are
lots of spring and summer clothing in reserve from last year. As well there are several bags of
donations from last Saturday’s breakfast still to go through.
The success of the St. Jude’s breakfast program is due the to the strong partnership between
our committed volunteers and our fabulous donors!! We can purchase quality food and have
great things such as fresh milk, toilet paper, clothing, footwear, coats, homemade hats, mitts and
scarves, and kitchen wares because of your generosity! Thank you and God’s peace.
Our next breakfast is Saturday May 4th from 9 – 10:30 am. All are welcome!
