Help Just Love Your Neighbor

From Just Love Your Neighbor

During our weekly meal deliveries, we have noticed that the front porch of a family of 12 who live in a trailer needs repair. On Saturday, January 28th, we plan to repair the porch and then share a meal with the family with tunes by Crispin and a communal meal. In addition to repairing the porch, there will be an opportunity to pick up trash around the property and help with the meal. The mother of the children works at Forest Manor Nursing Home as a housekeeper. They have been on our meal delivery route for 3 years and are recipients of food we deliver fHelrom the food bank. Members of Christ Episcopal may recognize the names of the children as the church adopted the family for Christmas in 2021. The aunt of the children who is helping to raise them also gave us the childrens’ ages and sizes.

Opportunities to help this family:

Come on to 21201 Gardenia (Abita Nursery Subdivision) Covington on January 28 from 9am-1pm.
Bring: Work gloves and a covered dish to share.
Tools will be provided to help repair the porch and clean up the yard.
Our shared covered dish food will provide a lunch for us as well as for their neighbors and friends.

As you are doing your New Year’s cleaning, set aside gently used household furnishings, linens, clothes and shoes, books and toys that may be of use to the family. Only GENTLY used items please. Bring with you on January 28th to donate.
